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.
