Fishermen's Memorial in Ventura CA

 

Fishermen's Memorial in Ventura

 

We spent a long weekend in Ventura at a resort on the marina back in August 2017 with our daughter, her husband, and granddaughter Ella who was a little over 2 at the time.

 

With a young child around one keeps busy exploring, and the marina was a great place to visit, virtually right outsite our door. The harbor seals were a big hit, as was the Fishermen's Memorial in the Ventura Harbor Village Shopping Center area surrounded by shops and restaurants (although Ella lost interest in this pretty quickly).

 

While it was quite beautiful, it was a sobering reminder of the many individuals who lost their lives in the fishing industry in Ventura over the years.

It is a dangerous industry Jeff Dowler, CRS and that is a fine memorial for those lost.

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS, what a great place to spend time in. What a beautiful memorial, we don't often hear about the fisherman who lost their lives, thank you for this post.

So very true William Feela  I think we often forget about this industry, and how dangerous it really can be on the seas!

Hi Lisa Von Domek  - it was beautifully done, and a wonderful reminder.

Thanks Beth Atalay  We don't hear much about this industry, do we?!

Good morning Jeff. I agree that we seldom think of the dangers of commercial fishing. Great post and pictures.

Hi Brian England 

We had beautiful weather and a great time exploring. Anytime I can spend near the water - lake, ocean, harbor - I'm happy.
