Adventures in Santa Barbara January 23-24

Since we were in Santa Barbara we decided to make the most of our time there so we really packed it in. We loved walking the neighborhoods and looking at all the buildings downtown. 

The air was crisp and sunny. It was a lovely morning to explore.

  We went into the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and toured the current exhibits.

We took some time to visit the main library where we chanced upon a musical concert set to start in an hour so

 We sat and listened to the performers warm up. A very pleasant chance encounter.

 Since the City Hall has a viewing tower next to the museum we went to the top floor and had a fantastic 360 spectacular view of the city, ocean and mountains nearby. 

 The viewing tower is just above the clock in this photograph.

 It's free. Go to the main lobby and take the elevator to the top viewing tower level.

 We also enjoyed walking down the main street of Santa Barbara which is again filled with shops and restaurants. This is State Street. 

 Then we were off for a quick visit to the Santa Barbara Mission (this was Aria's elementary school mission of choice so that brought back memories). 

 Tomorrow I will post our final day in Santa Barbara.
