We were Ojai Valley Inn virgins. Now we're not. We spent the most relaxing, peaceful, enjoyable, mature date night out at this quaint little inn last night and had such a grand time. The service was phenom, the property was absolutely gorgeous and serene. We saw 2 bird friends while there; a falcon and a large gray pelican by the pool, who kept us company. It was empty! We felt like the only people at the resort. For dinner at Marvilla we had a deconstructed caesar salad (i love) and carpaccio to start. I had the Halibut with parsnip puree (a new fave) and hubs had the juicy pork chop with shredded brussels. Then we curled up in bed and watched tv, a guilty pleasure that I only allow the both of us while in hotels. I'm so zen.
