It’s Anzac Day in Santa Barbara and as usual Steve led the ceremony.
Then it was a walk through the streets before the sun came out.
It was quiet and the architecture was interesting.
There is an enormous Moreton Bay fig tree brought as a seedling by a sailor in 1876. Read the story below.
We found an amazing house in a back street – it helps that John Donati was born here and knows Santa Barbara so well.
Back to the hotel where the lobby had become a meeting point for our guests arriving. This morning the Brannocks and nephew George arrived tired but ready to go to lunch.
Therapy lunch had its own post but after lunch we wandered the picturesque streets if Santa Barbara.
Live turtles in the fountain!
This plaque to Orella is Jordan’s great, great, great, great grandmother.
We finished the walk with a visit to a beauty salon where Antonio gave us eye lifting treatments. It was an hilarious half hour and worth the sales pitch he made. Here I am up close!
You be the judge. Have the bags under the eyes decreased! No before photo though.
