DSC07577Colorful tile decorates windows, doors, floors, stairways and fountains throughout this small city with the Mediterranean climate. While evocative of Spanish and Moorish designs, Santa Barbara tile really has its own style as you can see.

    Beautiful!
    By the way, my son’s band is playing in Adelaide next week.

      I hear from friends we made on the trip that it is REALLY HOT there. Tell him to be sure to take shorts and flip flops.

    Dana, great photos of a beautiful city! It may be hard to leave it when three months are up? When will you be back?

      We’ll be back April 1. Just in time to start in the garden.
