A Day On My Own

I'm a little sad we didn't head south to Quartzsite, because I will miss meeting some of the other bloggers.  But I don't regret spending a couple of beautiful days on the coast of California.

Today, while Craig enjoyed his football games on TV, I spent a few hours on my own.  I visited the Santa Barbara Mission and a few other historic places around the area.


The mission garden had a few blooming roses.


I liked this collection of cactus plants sitting on some steps.


Three burners and an oven.  Just like our RV!

I also enjoyed wandering around the shopping district in Santa Barbara.  I rarely buy anything, but like to "people watch."  I did stop at the Sur La Table and bought a good oven thermometer for the Alfa.  We use the oven almost every day, but find the temperature control a bit primitive.

Tomorrow we are heading north, and plan on stopping at Morro Bay for a couple of nights before going home and getting back to work on the house.  (GROAN)

  2. Thanks for sharing your photos from a beautiful day. It's too bad it has been so cold in Q, but you did the right thing to find some warm sunshine. If you look out the window and don't like what you see, move!

  7. I love the photo of the cactus. It looks like it was set up just for you.

    I'm sorry you have to go home. We felt that way when we'd take off on little trips before we finally sold the house. Hang in there, you'll get there...and now you have even more reason to get it all done.

    Hope it's not too cold for you.
