Back in the Saddle

If you’ve been following this blog, you know that Life Partner and I have had the good fortune to have recently adventured the hillsides and plains of Europe for our honeymoon.

After an amazing sixteen days, we. are. back.

I am at a loss deciding what exactly to say about the trip – where to begin.  So, I suppose I should let this post suffice as a “hello again”, and as the days and blog posts pass, stories and pictures of the trip will emerge and I can dole out bits and pieces instead one huge too-much-info-heap all at once.  I will say though that, although we were sorry to leave Ireland / Spain, we are happy to be home.  And Santa Barbara stands up beautifully even against the charmed cities of The Old World.

Of course I couldn’t have a blog post without a photo or six.  So here are some teasers (à la Gavin or myself using an iPad app called Photo Toaster).  Enjoy and hasta pronto!
