    Santa Barbara Island

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Weather can be unpredictable so be prepared for cool temperatures, fog, wind, sea spray and an occasional wet landing.
    Dress in layers, short and long pants, waterproof outer clothing, warm jacket, sturdy hiking shoes. Also bring sunscreen, sunglasses.

    Photo Equipment: Definitely take a camera, there are many photo opportunities. When kayaking or spending time at the beach I bring the disposable waterproof cameras. If I plan a day trip hiking, I bring my regular camera.
