El Presidio

I recently spent some time at one of our local gems. Every once in a while it's good to go play tourist a bit in your own backyard. Although I do enjoy the views of the Presidio from the outside like this, it had been a while since I took the full tour. It was quite apparent the caretakers have been working dilligently to bring this piece of history back to life. It makes for a wonderful walk back in time on a beautiful Santa Barbara afternoon.

Point Pinos Sunset

This beautiful little lighthouse is on the northern most tip of the Monterey Peninsula. At night it's quite bright, but there's always someone around with a bigger light, and this time of day there's no comparison. Still it's quite a beautiful spot! The Point Pinos Lighthouse is on the National Register of Historic Places, Reference #77000312
