I’m pickin’ up good vibrations. The west coast tribe has a laid-back vibe. At least this is what I picked up from my weekend by the ocean.
We visited our kids in Santa Barbara this weekend and experienced some of the coastal charisma. From the beach to the wharf to the art exhibit on the waterfront, there was a relaxed groove going on here. Nobody seemed stressed, hurried, or impatient. Even the kids at the skate park seemed nonchalant, quietly waiting their turn for the next flip and grind.
On our first visit we didn’t have time to visit any of the historical sites like the famous old Mission, so I guess we’ll have to return. Our mail is being forwarded to our kids’ place at the University of California – Santa Barbara, so we’ll need to get back there every few weeks anyway
