S is for Santa Barbara, California.
Some people call Santa Barbara “The American Riviera”. This beautiful city on the Pacific Ocean has so much style and charm. Along State St. you have many eating and shopping options. You get a very international feel when you catch several different languages being spoken. Santa Barbara is about 300 miles South of San Francisco and 90 miles North of Los Angeles. Just 40 miles North from my home.
State Street and the whole downtown area is very pedestrian friendly. There are many wonderful open air arcades for shopping and people watching.
Here are just a few of the Arcades.
Some of the Arcades have Sculptures to enjoy.
The Santa Barbara Art Museum is also located on State Street and of course you can view some great old relics and Statues or a Monet.
You’ll also find the Mission Santa Barbara up against the mountains. Some call this mission the “Queen” of the California historic Missions.
If you ever travel to California make sure and put Santa Barbara on your “must see” list but be aware that it can be very pricey to stay here.
S is also for
Seagulls at the Seashore
Sand at the Seashore
Shells from this same Seashore.
Now back to my hometown. Horses and ranches have great histiorical significance in Camarillo. Camarillo is named after Adolfo Camarillo. He was a rancher and is known for his famous White Horse which now is called the Camarillo White Horse. You’ll see these famous horses ridden in the Rose Parade. These are some of the Silver saddles from the Camarillo Ranch House Estate…
S is for a Silver Saddles
And S is for Spinning Wheel.
The Silver Saddles and the Spinning wheel are in the Historic Camarillo Ranch House.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and they have blacked them all out. I’m slowly working at restoring my posts without their help. Such a tiresome bother!
