Santa Barbara Bound

I hope everyone in blogland had a wonderful weekend. I just wanted to let you all know, that I will be in Santa Barbara for a few days with my husband. It's actually business for him, and fun for me.
I am planning on relaxing, reading, walking, eating, and most of all shopping.
If you have never been, Santa Barbara is a beautiful place.
A lovely place on the Pacific Ocean, with quaint shops and restaurants. Beautiful hotels and recreation.
Our daughter Amanda actually went to college in Santa Barbara, UCSB. She met her fiance Joe there.
Tomorrow is her 26th birthday.
It's kind of funny that we are going to Santa Barbara, considering it is only about an hour from home. It is like another world though, very laid back and casual, yet elegant all at the same time.
I will take a lot of pictures, so I can show you when I get back on Friday.
I will catch up with you all then.
See you in a few days!

I was hoping my son would go to UC Santa Barbara but he chose to go to UC Davis instead. I haven't been there in a long time but I remember it being very beautiful. Have fun!

I think I've been there. Isn't there a weekend art show right there on the sidewalk next to the beach. I think I went when I was 13 and I loved it.
I have family in Ojai.
Have fun.

I live in SoCal, also.
I love Santa Barbara! I like to stay at the Santa Barbara Hotel on State Street. From there, I walk everywhere.

Oh have a great trip!

By the way, your book graphic is gorgeous. Don't you just love those old pulp novels with the art nouveau covers?
