We found ourselves feeling inexplicably sleepy in the evening, then realized this is why.
Today we journeyed to far away lands a few minutes from our shores, via magic carpet. This view across San Miguel to the other Santa Barbara Channel Islands stretching into the dim East initiated us into a lazy tour of such dreamscapes. Soon we were looking back at San Miguel from the other end, where colors conspire to transport the unwary back to memories of the Bahamas.
No wonder we felt drowsy, with so much to dream about! Overwhelmed with such visions, it seemed our excitement alone would have carried us along toward veils of mist in the mysterious East.
As we neared that end, the green gator shape of Anacapa greeted us. We’d been desperate for a clear day to make this flight before brown summer sets in. We even got to see faint blushes of yellow Coreopsis crouched on the North slopes.
