After the fair we go to Lake Casitas water park, close to Ojai. It’s not really a water park to my mind, just a zero-depth pool for babies, a large pool with slides and fountains, and a lazy river, the star attraction. It snakes through the park and under bridges, passing by oases of chaise lounges and near a waterfall that you can choose to bypass or not. It takes at least ten minutes to complete the circle and it’s incredibly relaxing to sprawl in a giant jewel-toned inner tube and float away the afternoon.
