Betty's Big Weekend

Hi everybody!

This past weekend, I just had to get out of town, so a friend and I headed up the coast to Santa Barbara.


The beach was the first stop!


The Botanical Gardens were next.


We stopped by the Mission.


This was in the window of the Mission. Hummm.... Handy!



We spent lots of time on State Street, strolling up and down, enjoying the weather, the people, the food, and the time away from our usual routine.

We had a great time getting away and livin' it up in Santa Barbara!


Happy Thursdays to you all!

I love going to a new town and seeing a different way of life. We say we want a "change of scenery," but the French call it "changer les idées."

By the way, you look fabulous in your beachwear.

I used to watch a lot of volleyball in Santa Barbara. A favorite area to play, I always wanted to stay at Fess Parkers.

That security sign is funny. Makes one wonder what Power is behind the Mission security service. Your weekend looks like it was much more fun than mine.
