Gardens of Roses

Last week Dan and I decided to go to the Santa Barbara mission to enjoy a picnic dinner.  The weather was perfect, the food was delicious, and we loved looking at all of the beautiful roses in the extensive gardens.  The Santa Barbara mission is definitely a place to go see if you are in town.  It is absolutely stunning and an ideal place to go for a relaxing afternoon or evening.  After dinner we decided to go on a hike in the nearby hills and explore.  We discovered a few trails, an old jail house, and a reservoir that was built in 1806.  I will most definitely be going back soon for a full tour of the interior of the mission.
