OK, since everybody kept talking about the big tree we went by to see it. It's in the train station and it sure is big. Surprising to learn it was planted by a little girl from a seed in the 19th century. Nice photo op.

You only need a few minutes to see this - but it is worth it! The trolley tour takes you right by it.

This is a huge Morton Bay Fig tree, extremely old and provides shelter from the sun. Great photo opportunity.

I just happened to stroll past this beast of a tree and had to snap a quick shot of it for memories sake. It's quite grand!

Drove by on a Hot rod limo trip, and the driver stopped to show us the roots, fabulous span and the layer of compacted figs on the road.

The way the fig grows is so interesting. We saw them in Australia and it was nice to see another. I had not heard of it before going to Santa Barbara.

I personally love figs and cool, unique attractions such as this so thought it was really cool. The true is huge and twisted and you are allowed to climb on it. It's the largest fig tree there is!

A great place to go have a lovely meal with lover, a friend, and husband. I had the most sensual juicy duck liver & thine and leg over succotash cornbread. And for dessert was mouth watering blueberry pineapple upside down cake with a scoop of blueberry ice cream. Sorry ate up the dessert didn't get a photo.
