El Presidio De Santa Barbara

November 30, 2011
Feeling blue, Teddy got in her Benz and drove north to Santa Barbara SOLO. No Nibs. Fopsie has always told her to visit El Presidio De Santa Barbara so she did.
Teddy was fascinated by this old ranch/mission built in 1782 during the American Revolution.
The Spanish built this fort and Lt. Ortega was the first to run it--that was back when California was called Alta California. Inside, Indians worked and the Spanish military planned.
The simple Spanish architecture wowed Teddy. Join your favorite bear as she gets all Rick Steves on us and gives us a tour of this historic site.
