Gearing Up for My Next In-Person Jaunt

Next we're off to Oxnard CA. We lived in Oxnard for over twenty years and have two grown daughters who still live there, so going to Oxnard for an event is like going home--well, sort of. It does give us the chance to visit with our Oxnard family members, daughters, sons-in-law, and our youngest granddaughter (not so young, she's 16 already.)

The occasion is the Celebration of the Whales on Sunday. March 21st from 10 to 5 at the Channel Islands Harbor. All sorts of interesting things are sold at this event, crafts, jewelry and a lots of fresh vegetables and fruits grown in the area.

For this one we must take our tent, display tables, chairs and lots of books. I always have to decide which books will sell best at these events. Since some of my books are set in beach communities, the Rocky Bluff P.D. series, I'll be taking those of course, and everyone seems to be interested in Native American mysteries, so I'll take my Deputy Tempe Crabtree series too.

And there's always the necessity of figuring out what clothes to take. While we at the harbor, it's necessary to have layers. Though it might be warm, the wind comes of the ocean and sometimes that can make it chilly no matter how much the sun is shining. (And to think when I lived here years ago, I took the kids and hit the beach nearly everyday.)
