Moreton Bay Ficus

After a week in the LA area we started our road trip proper and drove to Santa Barbara. Memorial Day Weekend traffic. Not good!

One of the best meals of our three weeks was at the Boathouse at Hendry’s Beach. I’ve added a few pics here of the beach for prosperity.

One of my Facebook friends advised me to stop and see the Moreton Bay Ficus when we were in Santa Barbara so after a quick google search we popped down the street to visit. A great History to this tree and worthy of a visit just for that alone. I’m not a Fig person when Bonsai is concerned but these big boys impress! I got a parking ticket in the 10 minutes it took to visit the tree. This turned out to be the most expensive tree attraction we visited! It’s free for you if you make it there though.
