Hi Everyone! We are excited to be heading north for three different climate events! The first being a book singing at Chaucer's Book store in Santa Barbara. On the way to Santa Barbara, the GPS informed us that the quickest was was on the PCH, and we easily opted for the beautiful pacific views instead of the trafficy one! The drive to SB was beautiful, with the afternoon sun descending over the big blue ocean. When we drove past Malibu we began to notice all of the evident fire damage. The noticeable damage stretched for many miles along the coast. We didn't have time to stop the car, so Shahir, my co-pilot, snapped some photos of the fire devastation. You can see the black palm trees that lined the PCH in the above photo.
We made it to Santa Barbara right in time for sunset, and headed to Chaucer's book's where there was a reading and signing of Beyond Debate. The event was awesome, and the community members that came out to the event had interesting questions and thoughts on climate change. Chaucer's book store was not only a super cute community book store, but was also Shahir's best book signing event yet, with about 25 people attending. The book store staff told us that the audience was big for a weeknight. We were kindly hosted by some Santa Barbara CCL'ers, and are now on our way north to Santa Cruz for the next event!
