The 101 will take us along the coast to Gaviota State Beach. This will be PICNIC EVENT, So please please plan accordingly and bring your own food/drink. It is a beautiful place with much to see, so you can have family meet us at the beach!

Most people - even long time Santa Barbarans - don't even know this beach is here. It is a ways out of the city - 33 miles west of Santa Barbara to be exact. This beach was famous for a brief period of time when a scene from the 2004 movie "Sideways," which was nominated for Best Picture, was filmed here.

The coastal bluffs at Gaviota State Park reveal a 500-foot-thick cross-section of the geographically extensive Monterey Formation. Offshore and inland, petroleum geologists have extensively explored underground for oil reservoirs within this rock sequence and probed its depths to understand the genesis of this important oil source. The naturally cemented, bluff faces resist wave erosion and are tilted to display multiple layers like the pages of a book. The geologic layers contain some nicely preserved fossils, even the complete skeleton of a halibut-like fish.
