Sail Away

Sometimes you don’t have to travel very far to find beauty. Last weekend we headed down to the Beaches in Toronto. We found a spot on the rocks where we could look out and enjoy the lake. People were going by in canoes and paddle boards but in the distance the sailboats were gliding smoothly through the water.

I’ll let you in on a little secret. This was taken early in the afternoon on a hot, sunny and hazy day. A texture overlay in post created the ambiance I envisioned in my head.

Santa Barbara Harbour Abstraction

Before we hit LA we spent 2 days in Santa Barbara and I absolutely fell in love with the place. The beautiful harbour front, the quaint downtown area and the friendly people made me wish we were staying longer.

I took this image of the harbour from the wharf while we were waiting to be seated for lunch.

Speaking of lunch, if you’re ever in Santa Barbara you must go to Brophy Bros. After checking in to our hotel we asked at the front desk if they could recommend a good local restaurant. We were sent to Brophy Bros. I have to tell you the baked clams were the best I have ever had. And the oysters. And the shrimps. Ok…I’m making myself hungry and I really want to go back.
