Cool Pool Reflections (Weekend Reflections # 151)

Santa Barbara, California
Last October Vicki and I drove to Santa Barbara for a little anniversary getaway. We stayed at this motel. It was built in the 50's or 60's but it was nice and walking distance to the beach. 

I hope your weekend is cool and relaxing!

Please only link posts that have picture/s of reflections.

I'd like to disturb the calm surface of that pool too—or just walk to the beach. Nice choice to have!

Anyplace with a pool is a good place to stay. At least I think so. I like the way the buildings frame the canvas. Happy weekend James.

The pool looks fantastic. Although maybe a little cold for a swim first thing in the morning. :)

Hope you had a wonderful anniversary.

Extraordinary reflection, James, of a subject

Wow, that water is so still. Perfect choice!
Have a happy weekend.

I love that shot. Looks like a great pool to canon ball into.

The 50s style motel and pool are beautifully preserved here. I do love that fringe of lime green grass, reflected!

Bises,
