It is fun to watch the turtles and their gathering together on the rocks. This is a fountain area outside a restaurant that many people pass each day as it is right by the Library and the Santa Barbara Art Museum. It is in La Arcada Court just off State Street. If you come to visit the Library or the Art Museum, stop by the fountain and don’t forget to check out Gallery 113 that is also in the La Arcada courtyard.
On the way to deliver a painting to Gallery 113, I stopped at the live turtle pool. It is one of my favorite places to spend a few moments. Always a place for giggling children pointing out the turtles. They, as well as adults like to watch the turtles swim around and climb onto the rocks. La Arcada Court is a nice area to spend time. You are right by the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. The public library and several shops include art work to be viewed. A great art adventure can be found in this courtyard.
