heaven, i’m in heaven

May 7, 2010

I had thought about posting a series of these photos with a “Where Am I?” headline, but I’ll just cut right to the chase.

I’ve had a long-standing, long-distance romance with Santa Barbara; and this week I got a chance to spend some quality time with my beloved.

Not only does it have enough electricity to satisfy the city dweller in me, it’s the kind of country I crave.  Santa Barbara makes me feel good.

And it knows how to push all my buttons:  I could be very happy indeed living life according to Santa Barbara Car Free…and buying everything I need from the farmers market in Old Town Santa Barbara.  It rivals any of the markets I’ve seen in Europe.

To know, know, know SB, is to love, love, love it.  And I do.

    Oh, you’ll never want to leave. They have the market on different days and locations: http://sbfarmersmarket.org/events.php
    This one was the Tuesday market in old town. Let me know what you think!

    I can’t wait to visit SB! Hubby running a trail race marathon up there next month, and we’ve never been. What beautiful orchids and herbs. Where is this market located?

    Phil, you’d love it. There is a new Whole Foods in the area, but I didn’t feel the need to check it out — yet!
