Walking on State Street at Christmas time.

This is a beautiful little shopping center in Carmel, called The Barnyard. After dinner at our favorite restaurant in Carmel we spent the evening wandering around and checking out Christmas lights. On the right is a great place called Succulent Gardens. If you can't tell from the Epi photos on the site, a place like that is a real magnet for me. In fact a few of our Epis even came from there. On the left is a great little candy shop. (Try the grasshopper bark and the caramel cashew turtles if you stop there!)
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

Mission Christmas Trees
Some of the Christmas decorations at the Mission Santa Barbara. They don't usually do a lot in a flashy way, but I like the Christmas trees. They put them up really early too so you have lots of time to enjoy them!

Mission Santa Barbara ?Queen of the Missions? was founded on December 4, 1786 by Father Fermin Lasuen. It was the tenth of 21 Franciscan missions in California. It holds the distinction of being the only one to remain in continuous use since the day it was founded. Named for Saint Barbara, and founded on the day of her annual memorial feast, it continues to operate as home of the Saint Barbara Parish.

Festive Bird House
I like to think these birds were really in the Christmas spirit.
The alternative is they are getting a lot of sleepless nights
because of their neighbors' lights!
For Christmas my friend and I went to Laguna Beach. Right behind our hotel was a building that was totally decked out for Christmas. Their trees were amazing, after taking a few pictures of the overall scene I noticed the bird houses.

State Street Christmas
Just before Christmas I took a walk down State street with my new toy, a fish eye lens (courtesy of eBay). For several years I have wanted to take some shots of the Christmas decorations on State street, this is one of my first.
