We had some feelings of melancholy on our last day in Santa Barbara. This was a wonderful trip with great friends. The laughs, warmth and chances for long talks made it a very special
Before leaving, we hit the Coral Casino Beach and Cabana Club for a casual lunch. Most everything at this sprawling club, situated just above the roaring Pacific,
was, well, quite coral…
…a splendid combo with the blue sea,
But, I still felt a need to wander the lovely gardens of the Biltmore Hotel a little longer, taking in all of the details.

Jeff Bridges?! Do tell.
Sounds like a wonderful trip–it must have been a tough transition back to Seattle's reluctant spring. A little sun today, though, I hear.
I put a little shout out to you on my blog today, you inspired my post.
Hope you have a lovely week.

Emily, looks as though you had a 'splendid' trip to SB. We love it there, but have never bumped into Jeff! I do want to hear more gushing details when I see you next. We will meet in your neck-of-the-woods surely this spring/summer. ~Shannon
