Santa Barbara

I recently met up with some family for a day trip to Santa Barbara. I was in a bit of a mood that day, but being in such a gorgeous area and hanging out with my hilariously entertaining nieces cheered me up pretty fast. And instead of TALKING all that much, I spent much of my time taking a scrillion photos (much to the annoyance of those around me -- WHATEVER).  Here are more than a few of my pics from the day at the beach, the wharf, and the zoo....

Love the "no heels" sign! Cutie patootie kids!

I understand the need for the no diving sign, but the no stilettos? Is it really an ongoing concern?

Jen said...

Beautiful shot at the end of your neice, I assume! Also love the repeating nautical light fixtures pic! Finally what's not to love about art cars? I miss them from my previous life in Santa Cruz. I am surprised that Savannah doesn't have more for being such an artsy town and all. Glad you got to enjoy what is the beauty of Santa Barbara!

elephants!! or were those just CA retirees? ah-huh-huh! no really though, i've never stopped in santa barbara but i hear it's beautiful.

adrienzgirl said...

Those pics are great! The no stiletto sign is just awesome! Getting one of your really skinny heels stuck in between those boards would suck.

Dancing Branflake said...

These photos are awesome! They really capture the essence of the city. I do love the "Don't honk" sticker. Awesome.

No heels at the beach??? I really needed a sign to tell me that. Loving your photos - don't let people's grumbles distract you from taking them!
