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.
