Here are a few pictures of Santa Barbara. It is a truly beautiful area. Lot of tourism during the summer. Very much like Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz does have a nicer wharf though.
The picture was taken from the wharf which gives great views of the city. One thing I was very surprised over was the off shore drilling that they are doing down there.
This is a smoke could. The fire on the other side of the mountain started by mistake in July. Thousands of acres have been burned so far.
The water front is a very nice area in Santa Barbara with tall palm trees that line the walkway.
