The lunch spot we ate at in Santa Barbara was my nephew’s choice. Although a Houston native, he has been living there and going to school  for professional photography at  Brooks Institute.  We had planned on getting together when we were there.  He picked one of his favorite places, Panino, who’s menu is sandwiches, soups, and salads. I had a delicious tuna salad sandwich – white albacore tuna,  mixed with tomato, cucumber, green bell pepper, red onion with honey mustard and greens. I chose focaccio as the bread of choice…and it was a good one to hold all those ingredients together.

Afterward, he gave us a quick tour of the city. He drove us through the narrow, winding roads in the hills above Santa Barbara and to a hidden coastal access, called 1000 Steps (not actually 1000 steps but a staircase to access the beach that was pretty slippery due to the high tide).

Included are photos of Old Mission Santa Barbara and just one of the many beautiful roses in their rose garden.
