Hello from Santa Barbara, California ! We are a family of four, my husband and I and youngest daughter will be visiting for only a week in Paris, Spring Break from her High School, we look forward to having our other daughter show us around Paris, she has been there a month now. Maybe in the future we could trade houses, our home is three blocks to the beach in beautiful Montecito, which is just two miles south of Santa Barbara...we love the local beach, go hiking in the hills in Montecito and surf locally. Santa Barbara has great farmers markets and excellent restaurants. We are big fans of seafood and Mexican fare. My husband Robert works at a local water dept. and I substitute teach and deal in antiques. We are pleased to be visiting Paris soon !
