Santa Barbeque

heron at an inlet off the ocean

Well, we didn’t actually have BQ for Memorial Day, but we did go to Santa Barbara, along with half the population of So. Cal!  The traffic was horrible.  Note to self:  Go sight seeing on off-holidays.

The title–I just couldn’t resist the sick pun.  More pics to follow, but must share at least two from our outing.  Now back to correcting research papers!

    Love seeing the bird in flight. We live in a resort area connected by tunnels and bridges for the most part; and usually don’t venture far on the holidays. This year we had to, but traveled off-peak times.Glad you were able to get away. Loved the title of the post!

  2. Very nice heron. We’ve seen a few of these lately.
    We went on a picnic Sunday and were the only ones at that location. Can you believe that? Actually, one family left as we arrived. We had a perfect spot to eat, in the shade of the trees teeming with all sorts of unidentifiable birds. 🙂
    Traffic watching is no fun, but when you are bird watching from your mobile bird blind, you need to be aware of all those other big metal monstrosities. You think you can let your guard down on a rarely traveled country road, but that’s when they sneak up on you. Other cars, that is, not the birds. 🙂

    • Some of the beaches were wall to wall people with craft fairs and such. There was a time when that would have been appealing, but I just wanted to see nature. I have enough “stuff.” It was fun and a surprise to see the heron.

  3. lovely, lovely pictures! as for the pun title, haha 😉

    hope things are well, ms. lily… 🙂

    I’m glad you didn’t add them to your bar-b-que, the suckers are bound to be tough and not worth the trouble. 😉

I would love to hear from you!
