The Santa Barbara Mission is a beautiful place. A wonderful source for California history. As I followed the self-paced tour, I was flanked by numerous young students and their parents obviously fulfilling a scholastic requirement. I was intrigued to hear one father teach his daughter that his own great-great grandfather had worked at the mission as a lay church leader, lending his craftsmanship to the construction and maintenance of the amazing aqueducts that have helped put the Santa Barbara Mission on the map.
Moving on, I took almost 150 photos, not much I’m sure by the professional photowalking standards. I actually took more, but there were only 150 good ones. They are all up on my Zooomr site, and I’m excited to get the Zooomr community to peruse them and comment away.
Maybe next time, you’ll have the opportunity to join me as I photowalk somewhere just as exciting, beautiful, and historically intriguing as the Santa Barbara Mission.
