Santa Barbara

Mik and I took the opportunity to visit Santa Barbara, CA this weekend to escape the heat in the Inland Empire. It was 109 when I left the office in Mira Loma on Thursday. We found Santa Barbara to be a pleasant 76 degrees, and dipping into the low 60's at night...ahhhh. While we were out here this week, Houston was experiencing a deluge that has nearly brought it out of official drought... Here are a few images..
