Aloha RnA, ahhh to get away to the country, away from the bustle and hustle of modern life and urban sprawl...'snap'...now back to modernity.

Mahalo for the brief virtual respite, I could picture myself there. The buzz of the cicadas, the tubular gong of the melodic metal chimes, the utter absence of the cacophony of city living, unadulterated by the piquant odors of a callous civilization.

Standing there, the wind rushes up to greet me in it's restless, mischievous way, pushing up against the tall grass and tousling my hair with harried abandon. The sunlight catches my eye before it dives into the glass of grassy white, inverting the verdant countryside within in it's liquid silicon globe and scattering the light with bright white flashes.

The crisp whisper of the lake turns my attention past the canopy of old oaks to the meandering sandy shoreline. There the wind dashes across the waters celadon surface in glassy ripples, suddenly shimmering, then reversing with careless cavort. 

California dreaming...

Well, my dear friends, after Kimo's magical "write-up" of your photo blog, there's no way to add to that....so I will let you know that during our vacation Larry and I will watch Alan Watt's youtube that you sent us. 

Thank you and miss seeing my AR folks daily, but vacation comes first!

There is nothing like shade from a mature tree on a warmer day with a slight breeze playing through the branches Ron and Alexandra. Thank you for the visual!

It's kind of odd, but when I look at that last photo with the wind chimes hanging from the branches of the Oak, I can almost hear their music.

Kimo Stowell  what a wonderful interpretation of our feelings for the moment.  Santa Barbara as a little city is pretty relaxed, but there is something very special about the country, the land and the stillness.  Thank you for your beautiful words.  A

Good morning A.  Seeing the calm water makes me want to throw a hook in the water and see if I get lucky.  For the trees, looks like a good place to take an afternoon nap.

Hello Ron & Alexandra ... great photos and I think when I lived in Santa Barbara we swam in this lake. Can you swim in this lake or is it a reservoir?

Thank you for the owner.  It is both a lake and a reservoir.  We are happy that it has gotten water, although we need 3 more years of rain to get it back to where it was.  A

Hey Alexandra ... I can understand and I noticed the shortage when I was working in San Jose last year and staying in Morgan Hill CA.
