Three years ago today: Carpenteria Beach

Zen meditation on Carpenteria Beach
Three years ago today we went to the beach in Carpenteria, Calif.! The beach is north of Ventura along Hwy. 1 on the way to Santa Barbara.

The temperature was a perfect 71 degrees with clear, sunny skies and a gentle breeze off the Pacific Ocean. You had fun frolicking around in the sand, and I'm certain you enjoyed the weather, as the High Desert where we lived was a little cool.

We didn't spend much time on the beach, as we were on our way to Solvang for the day. On the way back, we stopped off in Ojai!

Here are some photos from our time at the beach!

Visiting the Santa Barbara Zoo

Three years ago today we visited the zoo in beautiful Santa Barbara, Calif.!

Though a small zoo, it was very pretty and had some great animals. The highlight for you probably was getting to feed a giraffe. You held leaves up to it, which it stuck its tongue and took from your little hands!

I like the condors a lot - they have been my favorite bird since I was a little boy! We also got to see gorillas, took a train ride around the zoo, fed goats, and went to the play area for fun!

Here are a bunch of pictures from our adventure!
