The Big Dog parade - a local favorite, and another excuse for a festival on State Street! 
P1010162.jpg
Well, maybe Big People parade also!

It's nice to have Amtrak service right at our door. The trips through the mountains to Seattle and along the coast to San Diego are beautiful, and relaxing compared to driving.

On our way to a hair appointment for Ellen, happened on a small gallery where some works by friend Jack Mohr were displayed.

A Jack Mohr piece.

We purchased this one, for a "perfect" wall spot.

A Santa Barbara weekend late-morning; news, chips/salsa, margarita and good weather. Only that empty chair...

Refugio beach in the sunshine. We were scouting a start and end point for a kayak trip along the coast.

And here's El Capitan beach, the kayak destination. A good place to find mussels on the rocks in season; we've had some parties with amazing amounts of fresh-steamed mussels!

There are some birds in the distance, hovering over a large pod of dolphin, in a feeding frenzy. One dolphin can be seen leaping into the school of fish the pod has "herded" into a small area. Amazing to watch.

Ellen fell in love with these critters, which are made by a Santa Barbara-area artist. We see him on weekends at the arts/crafts sidewalk tent sale at the beach.

One of our Perfume Delight roses; just trying out photo opportunities -- maybe will enter a slide in the American Rose Society contest! The gardener promises to graft a rose just for us; he has beautiful bushes growing at Bob's office building.
