... in Carpenteria. It was a beautiful place, but required some insider knowledge to get there. Once there, it was very nice, and there were even two naturalists there with extra binoculars and advice on the seals and the habitat, etc. It was a pretty good example of how nature and industry can co-exist - note the pair and the industrial equipment there… We spent about an hour here just enjoying the spot, and all the natural ...

Surf's Up in Sunny Santa Barbara

Weather down here is sunny and warm so looking good for the weekend ahead. Hope all is well at home ...
