Our last month in Santa Barbara, California, coincided with the start of the ‘Fall’ season (though the temperatures and local foliage were hardly indicators of autumnal weather!).
With only weeks left, before our return to Wellington, New Zealand, (just in time for spring) I definitely felt the need to indulge in some autumnal fair before bidding farewell to California. Thankfully, I had a very good friend (along with her delightful sister) who were more than happy to lead me astray…
and so, I found myself one lovely autumnal evening, in sunny California, enjoying the culinary delights on offer at the ‘Santa Barbara Public Market‘.
It was an evening of red wine to linger over, sweet treats and seasonal bouquets of flowers to delight over – combined with the most wonderful conversation and lots of laughter (sigh, now I’m feeling slightly nostalgic and missing my dear friend).
Now, back to reality and life in New Zealand – planting my spring vegetables in the garden (it’s going to take my mind and body a little while to adjust – all in good time x).
Linking up with lovely bloggers on the theme of ‘Autumn’ over at ‘Sticky Fingers blog‘ for the weekly ‘Photo Gallery’.
