CARPINTERIAMAGAZINE FALLWINTER2008

A warming heritage thrives in the change of season at year’s end. Turning back the clock heralds an early wake-up call to the renewal of routine that comes with back to school and the calendar of fall and winter holiday activities.


Settling into this issue of Carpinteria Magazine and considering the Cate School centennial, a thought surfaced about how some things constant go, if you will, “undercover” ... out of sight, out of mind.


Following this stream of thought, we open focus on our


coastal geography to observe the annual pilgrimage of the gray whales as they cruise the marine highway to birthing grounds on a southern shore.


From different page perspectives, you can plant yourself in the Carpinteria foothills and roam the front country, visit the Patterson brothers’ lightning hot blacksmith shop, and open a door to a surprising look at photos transitioned into quilt art.


Our cover story features the beautiful plein air views of Meredith Brooks Abbott who graciously shares her life and impressions of the Carpinteria Valley with us.


CARVE OUT SOME TIME FOR A DIFFERENT DAYTRIP


TO EXPLORE THE “UNDERCOVER” OF LIFE It is a busy time come fall and winter with traditional celebrations that bridge reflecting on memories past with putting forth energy to create new moments to transition into the future.


To help in keeping a smooth stride and enjoying the shift of the cooler season, maybe a break is due. Try carving out some time for a different daytrip to explore the “undercover” of life in Carpinteria ... and maybe start that project you’ve been missing!


Enjoy the read! EDITOR Amy Orozco
