I have attended that church!

You have? Isn't it a pretty little Spanish style church?

We went to Santa Barbara and stopped by the church on our 24th anniversary and it hadn't changed one bit. Not much changes in Santa Barbara (the "city fathers" don't care much for change) - except the traffic. It was bumper to bumper along Cabrillo. :-(

It is..Santa Barbara is charming and beautiful..It has been many years since I was there...The traffic could be really bad around downtown.

That would have been a Beautiful Place to have a Wedding, Lori!

Yes, it was a perfect place to have a wedding, on a perfect spring day on the beautiful California coast.

God Bless you and your Husband Always.

Thank you, kitty. We have been blessed beyond measure every day of our life together. Ours was truly a marriage made in Heaven. :-)

“Just a Closer Walk with Thee,” I love this gospel song. I never knew until now who wrote it.

What a lovely church!! And lovely memories to go with, Mama_Bear!!

Santa Barbara used to be my getaway for many years, going up for a day or a weekend. I really enjoyed shopping on State Street back in more easy-going times, going up to the Mission and the Botanical Garden.

Also, you are both probably familiar with the drive up on Camino Cielo. It’s heavenly, just as the name of the road says:)

Yep, I know all of those places you mentioned, dita. You are bringing back such nice memories of good times there. I met my husband when he was attending Brooks Institute of Photography and spent many days on photo shoots with him helping him with his assignments. We'd always end up at the Purple Onion or the Jolly Tiger for dinner. Don't even know if those places are still there or not.

The only thing I don't remember is Camino Cielo (but it's been a LOT of years). The name doesn't ring a bell. I remember Alameda Padre Serra, "APS", the drive that went along the foothills. I am going to "google map" Camino Cielo and see where it is. I'm sure I have been there.

The Methodist Church is just down the street from the Mission on Anapamu Street. I used to love to go the the Mission also. To me it is like the crown jewel of all the California Missions.

I learned to drive an old Nash Rambler in Hope Ranch, an area in S.B. with beautiful homes and expansive rolling green lawns. And the best steak I ever had was at Hidden Valley Ranch which was off of San Marcos Pass. Such great memories there.

I think maybe I will try to talk JK into going over to Santa Barbara for the weekend soon. I know I will be unhappy with the traffic conjestion, so I will just have to be prepared for it.

Hope you both are having a nice day. It is beautiful here.

The traffic has spoiled things quite a bit, IMO MamaBear, especially the way several streets were turned into one-ways. It spoiled the neighborhood feeling, and such lovely neighborhoods they are:)

I was a regular at a bed and breakfast, the name of which totally escapes me!!! It was a lovely California bungalow style house and had a hot tub out back....Yes, ma’am.

I used to go to a bookstore called Earth-something. You could sit around a fireplace reading. Also, used to get monster croissants and dark roasted coffee for breakfast, when that was a new fad.

Camino Cielo is above Montecito, I believe. When you drive that ridge, Santa Barbara and the ocean are on one side and Santa Ynez Valley on the other. The Reagan Ranch is up there, too. Oh, I hope you remember it now. There’s a country store at the bottom of the road.

Jeff remembers Camino Cielo, but I am drawing a blank. Nothing unusual about that. LOL. The truth is, all the time I lived in S.B. I was lost and had absolutely no clue where I was most of the time. (No, it wasn't drugs, LOL). ;-)

I have always had a good sense of direction, but for some reason I could not tell north from south and east from west.....I always thought that the ocean should be west, but it was actually south. I never understood that. Still don't. LOL.

Our first apartment after we were married was actually a little bungalow about two blocks from the ocean on Natoma Street, just down from the city college. A little studio apartment. We were only there for a couple months and then moved to the Bay Area. Sadly, I never really appreciated living in Santa Barbara until after we left. I remember people joking that Santa Barbara was a place for the newly wed and nearly dead. LOL. They did roll up the sidewalks at sundown, as I recall.

I am enjoying so much this little trip down memory lane. :-)

No problem, I draw blanks too, as you can see:) My mother always had a better memory than I do.

AND, I understand losing sense of direction in S.B....totally!!! It is very disorienting.
