Santa Barbara Beauty

A few more pics from my recent visit to Santa Barbara.

Part of the beach (at high tide) at the base of a high plateau on the north side of Santa Barbara called The Mesa. My friend, Priscilla, grew up on The Mesa and used to play on this beach as a child. I took this pic standing on a LONG set of stairs leading from the top of The Mesa to the beach -- affectionately called "the thousand steps":


A section of the thousand steps:


Near the bottom of the thousand steps:


Reportedly the largest fig tree in America. Notice the size of the roots compared to Priscilla sitting among them. (Disclaimer: we didn't see the "stay off the tree" sign until after taking the pic of Priscilla sitting on the roots.)
