I Modnnari at the Santa Barbara Mission

Every Memorial Day weekend we have a festival at the Santa Barbara Mission. An Italian street painting festival, the entire mission driveway is turned into a temporary art gallery. Hundredes of artists transform the pavement into amazing works of art with nothing more than chalk. Over the next couple of days I'll try to bring some of my favorite views of the festival to you.

Santa Barbara Mission Kitchen

The Santa Barbara Mission is a beautiful place. But you usually see it from the outside. This is a display of a kitchen as it was for the early inhabitants of the Mission.

From the plaque on the wall:

"This kitchen display is typical of the indoor cooking facilities of the early 1800s. Cooking was done both outdoors and indoors. Indoor cooking was usually done by women over hot, glowing charcoal.

FOOD SOURCES:

Large gardens, orchards and adjacent ranchos supplied the Indians and Mission community with vegetables, fruit livestock and grains such as wheat, barley, oats and corn. THE ORIGINAL ADOBE CAN BE SEEN ON THE LEFT SIDE WALL."

La Purisima Kitchen Panorama

I recently spent some more time at the La Purisima mission and this time I actually brought my tripod. It's a little dark in the rooms to get the detials without it. I particularly like the rooms where they have furnished and set up "day in the life" type scenes like this. You can't actually walk around in this room, but it is still an interesting glimpse.

Mission Kitchen

I really liked this picture. It is one of the first batch of photos I pulled out to scan when I got my new scanner a year ago. But, I was not sure who else might find it attractive. Turns out, it is pretty fitting for a Mexican Restaurant.
