Santa Barbara, CA

Well, there’s more to come in the next couple of days, as I actually had time to process a lot of thoughts and ideas while Janna and I were on vacation in sunny California. It was absolutely ethereal. 70+ degrees and sunny the entire time. Sand, surf, the smell of salt air, mountains and grapevines, and good friends to share it all with. Mucho thanks to Andrew and Angela Clemens for hosting us once again – their hospitality is overwhelming and their friendship treasured; thank you so much guys!

I can honestly say that this has become my favorite location in the world – and I’ve traveled a fair amount. Santa Barbara is what Janna and I call our “Happy Place.” We love it there and I must admit, it’s quite difficult not to pine for it and move there… but all is God’s, so I’ll say no more. I’ll let some of the photos say the rest, for now. More to come…

    Hey thanks for the message. I got it while working in a cubicle and staring at a computer. Then I heard from my mom that you got to do some surfing. Ahhhh, dangit! Yeah, words fail me.

    The pictures are beautiful. My favorite is the grapes. It instantly brought to mind the passage, “I am the vine and you are the braches”. One of my dads sermons I remember from yesteryear. Amazing how that all came back by looking at a picture. I am glad you guys had a good time.
