Have a Lookie

A few times a week at lunch I've been going out for walks. Like I've said before, it's really the only time of my day that I feel is mine. The rest of the day I'm either sitting in my cube working for "The Man" or at home being a mom and wife. But my lunch hour is my time, all mine and I'm doing what I want to do.

I end up walking about 3 miles around the neighborhood by the office. I love looking at all the houses, the gardens, flowers in bloom and generally just enjoy a pretty afternoon. I thought I'd share with all of you just some of the things I saw on my walk on Friday. Enjoy!

Heading up the street from the office

These beautiful Jacaranda trees are in bloom all over town

Cute little house for sale... no, I don't know how much but, probably close to a cool million, yikes!

The Santa Barbara Mission

The dude on the Segway

The Courthouse and someone enjoying a sunny ride

The play structure at the park

There you have it, a small sip-it of what my walks are like. Pretty nice, I think.

Those pics are lovely!

You say on your profile: "We live in an area of the country where being anything bigger than a size 6 is considered unacceptably large and in a town where movie stars live."

Would that be LA, or one of the suburbs of LA?

You have to help me here I am a simple London lass from the UK with not a huge amount of knowledge about the US.

Although one of my favourite cop shows is Columnbo, the most famous LAPD detective ever!

Looks like a lovely place to walk around.

Santa Barbara is on my list of places I'd like to see in the States. I LOVE that tree--I've never actually seen a jacaranda. Do they have any fragrance?

Great job on the walking!

Manuela~ Jacaranda's don't have any fragrance but they are absolutely beautiful this time of year when they are in bloom. The flowers fall off and create sidewalks gorgeously littered in purple.

That's such a beautiful walk you've got! I love the trees.

How gorgeous! When I worked I always LOVE LOVE LOVED my lunch break - teaching it's only 30 minutes, but it was 30 minutes of pure heaven!

OH, and isn't that house too cute? I want it!
