Sunday, October 16. On a Mission.

Written by Jack van Ommen on October 16th, 2016

Just came back from 9 a.m. mass at the Santa Barbara Mission. This is always a real treat for me. Many good memories. Lisa, our oldest daughter was baptized in the mission in 1964, when we lived here. It has the best acoustics, I can hear myself sing. Superb choir. My picture taken without flash, came out a bit grainy.

And for dinner I was treated by Kelvin and  his wife, new sailor friends. Yesterday was the annual S.B. Harbor and Seafood Festival. Hordes came out in the beautiful weather and consumed volumes of lobster, crab and fish from many of the take out stalls. This picture shows what Carotene can do to your hair, just like in Flamingoes and Scarlet Ibis, of a steady crustacean diet.dsc_0021
