March 9, 2011 - Beaches around Santa Barbara, CA

We took advantage of the "Chamber of Commerce" weather on the 9th and toured from north to south along the water.  It was in the 70s, sunny and fairly calm.

The beach close to UCSB:


Not many people since it was a weekday.

Some kelp washed ashore. A bit later a gull was eating it.

A kinetic sculpture that moved in the wind.

Next we stopped at another beach with this nice mosaic.

Nice location for a restaurant.

A dog friendly beach.

We can see why the locals like living here.
