But before I post the pictures I took yesterday, let me show you what it was like at home (as always, if you click on the photo, it will enlarge).
This is a picture of my street on Feb 16. Pretty dreary, huh?
This was a picture of my backyard on March 6th. This portion doesn't get much sunlight, and the temps haven't been very high. I know, it's not as bad as some, but man, I'm just sick of snow!
Yesterday, on Stearns Wharf! Look, no snow!!!
Walk/bike path. I could get used to coming here everyday!
The beach. Yes, that's still California there in the distance (Santa Barbara beaches face south). And that cliff off to the left, just a little downways is the Santa Barbara cemetery (Well, the cemetery is on TOP of the cliff!). My grandmother is buried there.
Here's a panoramic view. Stearns Wharf is from center to right.
I got a little bit of sun. Well, we all did. We planned on going to the Santa Barbara Zoo today, but now we're rethinking that. Might hold off. On Tuesday we plan on going to Santa Monica and Los Angeles. I want to see the LaBrea Tar Pits!!
It's not a given I'll have access to the internet during the day (you know, because I don't have one of THOSE phones--haha!), but I'll check in when I can.
Where do you wish you could be right now? I'm where I wish! In fact, I think it's going to be real hard leaving this place.
