Photo above...Scenic mountains of Santa Barbara, California. Just above the Santa Barbara Mission.
The one draw back with traveling is that it can be difficult to find Internet connections, especially while one is confined inside a moving vehicle. My little cannon camera has clicked away at a number of photographic sites but they remain on its memory card until I have sufficient time to label and post them. Guess what this all boils down to is that I am now in Bend, Oregon and still have pictures from California yet to blog about. Always a day late and a dollar short!
Photo below...The front of the historic Santa Barbara Mission with its interesting architectural details.
Photo below show close up of the detailing on mission pediment and the cross. The mission entrance is flanked by twin bell towers.
Photo below...another perspective of the front of the mission, this time sans tourist. Unfortunately we were not able to view the interior of the mission church as there was a wedding in process...lucky couple to have such a gorgeous place to have their wedding.
Photo below...Mission plaque stating some of the chronological history of the mission.
Photo below...Panoramic view of mission or as panoramic as my tiny camera can get.
Photo below...Santa Barbara hillside dotted with mission style homes and gardens, and an amazingly clear blue sky.
Photo below...One of the bed of roses in the mission park rose garden.
Photo below...Me and my hubby in front of the roses. Was surprised that I didn't break the camera, LOL.
Photos below...more of the rugged but beautiful California mountains.
I will have to post more later, but at this time we are about to leave to go to the cemetery and take care of John's mother's remains. Bye for now.
