As previously posted we would go out and do fun activities in the mornings, you can view those pictures here, here, and here. We visited the Santa Barbra mission that happened to be having a sidewalk chalk drawing competition and festival which was extraordinary! We also explored the natural history museum, aquarium which was located on the pier, as well as the zoo and the beach!
This was the beginning of my interest in photography, photographing the butterflies was such a rewarding way to learn how to photograph, it was so fun!
And this is how she gets all those great photographs, she has no limits of what she will do. Here she is taking pictures of this adorable river otter couple what where getting ready to nap.
Most of us rented bikes and would bike in the mornings or afternoons, we would bike down to the beach and ride along the misty shore, ah! it was just too much fun! After our morning activities we would come home and enjoy our lovely vacation home. Sometimes we would go swimming or hot tubbing if it was cold, play tennis on the tennis court that was parallel to the pool, or just explore and enjoy the beautiful grounds and gardens.
