Sunset Cruise

Not long after moving to Santa Barbara we went on a romantic sunset cruise of the harbor. So delightful to look back at our “new” town snuggling in for a cozy night beneath the mountains. Dappled hues on the gently rippling water, as we joined other couples talking quietly and cuddling against the mild chill. Lovely.

Well today we enjoyed another romantic cruise, this time 1/4 mile up flying slowly West in the calm air. Sunlight was still caressing rolling hills.

In the West there was a fascinating orange “cloud” that stood out from a few slightly pink clouds more toward the northwest.

We decided it was smoke from a wildfire or more likely from agricultural burning, as was the consensus on a different photo of it I sent to Edhat. As the fun finally thinned to a sliver on the horizon, I snapped one last photo before we turned for the gentle ride home to SBA. Have I ever mentioned that Santa Barbara is an exceptionally beautiful place? 🙂
