East to West

I flew the brother of a dear friend in a large circle, first from SBA to Montecito where this lovely home nestles at the base of the mountain.

Compared with many Montecito estates and manses this one’s fairly modest. I like how the grounds integrate with the manse creating a unified whole. We of course saw many other beautiful and interesting things, but I didn’t snap many pix. The other one I like from the flight is this view past Broadcast Peak to the Channel Islands, tho the snap only takes in what I’m guessing is Santa Rosa Island.

It’s such a delight to fly with someone who loves it, and the smile on his face when he told sis about it was heartwarming. Sometimes I wonder why everyone doesn’t fly at every opportunity, but it’s lucky they don’t or it wouldn’t be such a relaxing activity. Even with the vast airspace available, if everyone else were up there…
