Santa Barbara 3: Fourth of July
The Fourth of July was spent at a beach in Carpenteria with Heidi, the only friend I have from high school days.
She has become a step-grandmother to Tsering, a two-year-old beauty who is the result of a partnership between a statuesque blonde and a Tibetan.
Tsering adored the beach so completely she was even eating the sand with pleasure.
Late in the afternoon, behind the Santa Barbara Courthouse where Jesse James Hollywood is currently being tried for murder...
...there was a concert by the Santa Barbara Symphony of patriotic music from Sousa to George M. Cohan.
I didn't stay for the shindig because the music program honestly looked dreadful...
...and a Fourth of July party was awaiting in the hills.
