Road Trip! Santa Barbara, CA!

My cousin's ex-husband has died after a long illness in the Santa Barbara, Summerland part of Southern California.  The memorial is tomorrow at 11 a.m. but we're going up today to see family and to visit the Santa Barbara Z00 which boasts 500 animals!  30 acres!

After riding in a car for 2 1/2 hours to travel 103 miles, I was relieved to learn that there is a Zoo Train which gives you an overview of everything on display. And usually a knowledgeable guide driving it.  We'll work out the kinks by the walk from the car to the train station.   The schedule for feeding a giraffe is quite complicated and we will probably have to miss it.

I found an appealing-sounding place for breakfast tomorrow, Cajun Kitchen, but now have to find an agreeable place for  tonight for dinner.  Suggestions welcomed, table of five.

The reception for the people honoring the deceased takes place at 1 p.m. following the full-tilt boogie Catholic funeral mass.

We come home directly after it.  Both times we will be taking the freeway, not the scenic route.  We want to get there not gape out the windows going "Oooh" and "Ahh"  And equally to come home.

Details to come.
