Santa Barbara’s Harbor & Seafood Festival 2013


Marina M-a-a-d-n-e-s-s

Summer is a repeat customer here in Cally, no doubt because it likes the beach, and in the course of its extended stay, has been ordering up drops of golden sun for the whole of September, stretching its solar limits alla way into October. As welcome & fresh as the day it came–unlike say, relatives or fish. Or even the fishy relatives you’re about to meet! Click below to cast off at SB’s virtual docks, where the halibut is digitized, but the festival celebrating Nemo is also digitized! (see what I did there…? How I pulled the ole switcheroo? You thought I was gonna → →, but then I → ← whoop! and…:) Anyway. Join me in on this pixelated promenade, grabbing an incidental tan that’s sure to leave your derma creased with smiles!!

The picture below is how I cropped & loaded the hands-on, shark pool into my movie editor, but alas and alack…a lack of videe knowhow left my frownie commentary out in the ether. I don’t think a petting pool was necessary in this chaotic atmosphere, safe for any species involved, and for what little enjoyment it added for the kids, it added oceans more misery for these solitary animals. Isn’t it enough we eat them & trap them in marine “parks”?

(Jumps off iffy soapbox) Moving on, let’s wrap up this sardine-packed post—I’m talking people here, peeps, because woo, Nellie! crowded as a tin!—on a more harmonious note. Click below to jam with FIsh & the Seaweeds, a totally rockin’, anti-beach, beach band based out of San Diego.


Time for me to grab some grub! Peaceful Sunday to you all. 🙂

    • thanks, Cindy! I have been stitching it together all morning. I read some camera to movie (making) tips after the fact, of course, but next time, I hope to achieve a better resolution for full screen. Heck, why not silver screen cuz I am clearly Karen Screenberg…oh ho ho.

      You should do video!!! THAT would be spectacular…

      Have an awesome Sunday at the Holler!! 🙂 🙂

  1. Looks like it was a good time. I especially love that bit at the end with you laughing.

    Enjoy the remainder of your Sunday

  2. magnifique, Charron, mille merci… oh dear, I miss California – in general and Santa Barbara, in particular…

    my very best, tons of inspiration, have a sunny day and an optimistic week! 🙂
    Friendly hugs, Mélanie

    • Hi Mel,

      that’s about the nicest review this post could get. To wax nostalgic. 🙂

      SB is just the prettiest best city. Almost like a cartoon! So it suits me to a Tee.

      If you ever come by–I have sunscreen!!


  3. Looks like great fun! Stay safe! You were 2 hrs away from me! How smashing is that ! Blessings friend ~Debbie

    • It was really, unexpectedly a hoot. Super crowded, but mostly surfers and fishermen and other ocean peeps–so that makes a pretty laid back atmosphere.

      We are neighbors, Deb’? That IS cool…we could meet for coffee sometime…:) I would adore that!

    • Well girl, I’d go anywhere with u except that I’m bedridden & homebound 90% due to my pain but, you’re always welcomed in my home should you ever drive this way! Maybe you could consider this for the holidays. Hope you’re well this day dear~ Xo Faithfully Debbie

    • I am–thanks for saying. I hope u R good, 2. It’s been a heckuva…to say the least.

      I will definitely keep that in mind, Debbie–I got peeps in SD area & Cally does not have a bad road trip. (well, LA ain’t grand, but once you get through that)

      TC, Sweetie! I am going pop by your place!
