ABC Wednesday ~ Outdoors in Santa Barbara

We are on the letter O and my choices are October, Outdoors, On the Coast, On a Walk, Overcast!


Dear and I drove up the coast last Saturday. After a drive through San Marcos Pass to stop at Cold Springs Tavern for breakfast, we headed back to the shoreline in Santa Barbara for a walk. We headed up the beachwalk to the Bird Refuge. There was quite an intense marine layer effect happening on our drive and during our walk. We could not see out into the Pacific. We headed to the refuge and the layer was a little less dense here.


I was really happy to capture this Pelican at the refuge. Oops I guess I should have saved him for next week. P is for Pelican…

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage demanding a ransom that I can’t afford. So frustrating as I try to clean up my posts and delete their ugly squares of black and grey off my blog posts!

  1. This is lovely – isn’t it nice when it’s a bit misty. Your header had me puzzled for a bit – Santa Barbara & that castle just did not match – but I read the explanation, so I’m OK now.

  2. Beautiful pictures!

    So, I’m stopping by to let you know that I’m hosting the Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style recipe exchange again this year, on 7 November. I hope you can join me and if you’re willing to help me spread the news, I’m offering a giveaway as well!

  3. Your little peli is so majestic that I think you could post him next week too! They are my favorite birds.
    It looks like such a beautiful day and your pictures are breath taking!
    Have a lovely evening Ellen B. Just walk away from the computer and I’m sure it’ll be up and running in no time.
    🙂 Cori G.
