Santa Barbara is a beautiful, peaceful city and I had a lovely time. Stayed just a few blocks from downtown in a quaint B&B.
The restaurants are amazing, as is the beach. Loved the courthouse and the museum. Downtown was so clean and spacious and the city is extremely walk-able. The week I spent there was just what I needed to recharge my batteries. I had a lovely time on the “American Riviera.”
Not all of the pics are from Santa Barbara. The very first one (black, beautiful and mysterious) is an image from Cimarron, NM and the picture that looks like land baked so long that it cracked is in Sherlock, KS. I took those pictures from the plane.
