Around Home

Often after one of our Adventures flying around the continent, we’ll take a short flight around home. Sometimes the next day, even though we may be resting up. After the 4C Adventure, we did rest up for five days but then filled our hearts to overflowing with views of our beautiful home town.

SBA gives us instant gratification. The moment wheels leave runway we’re looking past the old Marine Corps bunker across the wetland past UCSB to the Channel and the distant islands. The quality of light here stimulates a deep breath, and the air that has been caressing skin fills your lungs with gentle aromas whispering, “There’s no place like Home.”

Even after many hundreds of hours flying here, every flight brings new beauty to notice. Perched among trees on this little hill just east of Turnpike is this modest mansion with a magnificent view. Looking up San Roque Canyon, our mountains offered a quiet anchoring presence whispering again in a deeper voice, “There’s no place like Home.”
