We left beautiful Santa Barbara, and decided to take the "back road" again, on our way to Simi Valley to the Reagan Library. Jane had to drive, because the road was just full of switch-backs, hairpin turns, and steep hills. From the 101 up to Ojai was about 15 miles, but took about 40 minutes.

... in the sun in rows on it. They are huge, smelly, and rather ugly, but amazing to see them, and in such vast quantities. Emma was just thinking how civilised it all looked with them lined up so nicely when the fights in the water started. Not sure if they were playing or fighting but it didn't look too friendly, lots of teeth and long noses/trunks flapping around. Rich told Dylan they were fighting over a wife which, of course, he's remembered. After lunch we press on whilst ...
