Santa Barbara (Courthouse Bell)
The Santa Barbara hills in the distance as seen from the Courthouse.
If you ask a Santa Barbara resident about "June Gloom", this is probably not the exact image that would come to mind. Even though the naturally cool and foggy summer days are what make this amazing sunlight on the hills.
On the other hand, if you ask a Santa Barbara native about Santa Barbara, more likely than not this is the image they will see in their minds' eye. It's not the beaches as much as the hills and the architecture of our beautiful home that makes us feel like we couldn't live anywhere else.
Ok, the beaches are wonderful too! I'll admit I would really miss them. But, so many different people have told me that this captures their image of the city so perfectly that I actually had to change the name to simply "Santa Barbara"
