Santa Barbara – part two – by evening’s light


After freshening up at the hotel in Montecito (stay tuned for Part Three) we drove to the beach area. To be accurate, BG did all the driving. Thanks BG. As we strolled along Cabrillo Blvd we noticed this lovely restaurant patio. The menu looked good so decision made.

We ate dinner at Due Lune Ristorante-Bar. I ordered the Garden Party salad accompanied by the house red wine which was pretty decent. BG chose a pasta dish which looked very pretty in bright green.

We could easily have been in Sorrento, Italy! There was a nice view of Stearns Wharf, the beach and people passing by.

I love taking these Southern California getaways. We have so much to do and see in our own back yard!

It was such a gorgeous evening. The few occasions over the years when I’ve been in Santa Barbara as the sun is going down I have always been struck by the golden light as the mountains are bathed in a pink and purple glow.

On the walk back to the car this quirky abandoned mail box on the street caught my attention… I couldn’t just leave it standing there without taking a photograph!

I am an explorer and creative person. I've had many jobs, careers and interests... everything in life and the universe fascinates me. Born in Brighton, England, I've lived my entire adult life in Los Angeles, California. A few years ago I rediscovered photography which is a great excuse to get outside and look. I'm also in the process of re-writing some of my unpublished short stories and possibly a novel. .

  1. Fantastic shots, Roslyn! What a beautiful area.


  2. Thanks for the views of a town my mother always liked to visit. No need to explain why she kept coming back!


  3. So much incredible natural beauty in Southern Calif. — thanks for taking us along to SB with you Rosyln. You captured the light so well here, especially photos #5 and #6, golds and purples, like you say.


  4. Love the wine glass photo!


    • I knew you would! And as you know, now I am paying the price of self-imposed abstinence for a couple of weeks. It will make that next glass of wine taste so much better!


  5. I am making up for YOUR abstinence!
