Grocery shopping on the Mesa
Feels like a holiday weekend as the Super Bowl and the Santa Barbara Film Festival overlap – the city is abuzz.
Gotta get some supplies and we’d never been to Lazy Acres on the Mesa, so I get out the panniers and off we go on an urban adventure.
We’re new to Santa Barbara – we lived in Orange County for 20 years – as old friends come for a visit I take them for a bike ride up to City College, for the views. It’s just a short ride higher to the best grocery store in town.
The climb is easy and gradual, the shopping is grand and the views on the way down are sublime.
We’ve turned a typical, mundane Saturday chore into an urban adventure.
