In December 2016 my wife, daughter, son and I made one of our occasional trips (815 miles one-way) to visit my parents in Santa Maria, on California’s Central Coast. December 25 was both Christmas Day and my parents’ 60th wedding an­ni­ver­sa­ry! As is usual for me, the trip was a mix of visiting with family and exploring the area photographically.

During our five-day stay I took photos of subjects both old and new around town, including the Santa Maria Inn, the Ethel Pope Auditorium at Santa Maria High School, the Santa Maria River and its levee, my great-​grandparents’ old house, and my uncle’s dogs. Whew!

More photos from this trip can be seen in the Santa Maria Pub Crawl 2016 and California Coast 2016 albums.

The photos in this album were taken with the  Olympus OM-D E-M5  camera.
