Winter moving toward spring, these healthy mixed berry muffins seemed like the perfect thing to make and indulge in without having too many calories, like muffins tend to have. They were really good!
Yes, we’re finally getting a little rain. Just a gentle rain to start out the season. It was very welcome and I didn’t even mind that it came down while I was swimming. Why should I?
I looked for a rainbow, but it was apparently down by the beach, out of view. Happy Fall!
Santa Barbara’s Wacky and Wild Summer Solstice Parade
There are many who’s favorite season is summer. The warm languid evenings, playing at the beach, walks with your dog, getting together with friends… what’s not to like?
One thing that Santa Barbara is known for is celebrating summer with the Summer Solstice Parade. It’s wacky, it’s wild, it’s fun! And people come from miles around to ‘experience’ it.
I was in the parade the past two years (dancing, then singing), but this year I was a spectator and able to get some fun shots of the parade and after party at Alameda Park, where there was food, live music and vendors selling their wares long after the parade was over.
The theme for this year was “Creatures.” There were many great entries in the parade once again and it was a joyful way to greet summer.
