We love coastal hiking. Blue skies, crashing waves and plenty of seals and sea otters to watch.
There are so many white herons on the southern California coast.
I have no idea what this is but it looks like it’s been here a long time.
The harbor in Ventura has a great walking path.
It was just the two of us for Thanksgiving dinner but we made the best of it. At least there was no cooking for a couple of days after.
Santa Barbara always looks good. The views from the County Courthouse are lovely.
There is lots of great tile work inside the building. From the floors to the stairs and walls.
And so many pots.
The wrought iron railings are also pretty fancy.
With lots of curvy bits.
California park restrooms are becoming very socially correct.
Ahhhh! So good to see my Jay at last. He gave us another peek at his metabolomics lab. He just added another big machine. His lab is now up and running and analyzing such diverse things as pomegranates to earthworms.
The University campus is gridlock and we felt lucky to snag this spot for a picnic lunch.
Our grand dog Maya was also pretty thrilled to see us.
On to the Palm Springs area for all of December and we get Jay for Christmas. Yippee!
