up the coast

We headed up the coast to Santa Barbara earlier this month for a couple of days of recharging.  My husband has a favorite golf course right on the coast that he was hoping to play so we stopped in to schedule him a tee time for the next morning.


As golfers luck would have it, the starter said he could go out right then and since it was already 3:00 in the afternoon and no one was on the course, there was no problem with me riding along.






So I grabbed my camera and hopped on the golf cart.  What a perfect opportunity to spend some time with him doing what he loves and to witness some absolutely breathtaking scenery along the way.   








By the time he was finished the sun was setting over the Pacific Ocean leaving behind the most gorgeous show of color...











 The end of this perfect day was punctuated by this spectacular full moon.


It couldn't have been more beautiful if we had planned it and it will definitely be on our list of Autumn traditions.

  13. That is one beautiful sunset. When I was a teen, my family went to California once and every night we made note of how pretty the sunsets were on the water there. Thanks for sharing this one with us.
