    Sincerely TC thanks. K walked this year but has a quarter more to do an internship. V came down from Berkeley for the ceremony and informed us she would finish course work in Dec, but wait to walk until May 18 next year. This way she can walk with all her friends. Both thinking about $$$$ and trying to give their folks a hand.

    One thing genetic Kayleigh inherited from me was a love of the sea and oceans of any sort. So the decision to go to Santa Barbara was easy. She is an avid surfer and loves to scuba dive.

    UCSB is not actually in Santa Barbara but about 12 kilometers north in Goleta Ca. Its on the tip of a promontory and sits basically on its own as you can see.



    We had one day before the graduation and one day after to explore the area. It was easy as its sort of like small town life. No traffic jams and the pace of life is slow. Less than 100,000 people including the students and the town of Goleta.

    So much of the life revolves around the water.





    Not a well know beach as its for walking your dog... Hendry's beach.



    The Boathouse restaurant where we had graduation dinner.





    The pier





    Luncheon spot

    Just off State St. is the Presidio of Santa Barbara, not a mission but a control spot for the Spanish long ago.



    Then you have mission Santa Barbara.





    There was a rose garden as well. This was the only day of the trip it was not clear, but the smell of the roses was fantastic.



    Downtown Santa Barbara, and the venue for the graduation





    Now we will head back north. Up to Lake Tahoe Ca. Down through the central valley where it was to hot up to Mt Shasta. From there to Crater Lake. On to Ashland Oregon and the Rogue River, ending up cutting through the coastal range to Crescent City and down through the Redwoods back to the SFO bay area for a last weekend with the kids.

    Fire season has really kicked off on the west coast. Here is the fire danger at Tahoe on June 14. Now there are many big fires burning in Ca. and Or.
