SBMM's Kardboard Kayak Race
Challenge teams to a battle of wits, design and courage! Teams of up to 4 will receive 2 sheets of cardboard, 1 roll of tape, a marker, a utility knife, a yardstick, and one hour to construct a functioning kayak. Then they will be ready to race other teams in their heat, finding out whose design can hold up to the pressure of paddling out to a buoy and back.
The Kardboard Kayak Races are divided into separate heats, with prizes awarded to participants in the Family Fun Heat (geared to family groups with younger kayak paddlers) and the Paddling Pros heat (geared to adults and/or skilled competitors).
Speed and construction design will be the true test!

Epiphyllums also known as Cacti Orchids
These stunning flowers only last a day
The plant itself is not particularly lovely....
ohhhh but the flowers are truly
exotic and lovely
I discovered these unusual plants in the garden
of a client who had passed away.
She had a passion for beautiful flowers.
the plants were hanging in the trees and looked
I asked if I could take them home
A friend who had been a docent at Santa Barbara's
beautiful Lotus Land came over to
tell me about them
I nurtured the plants and did some research....
One day.... they began to bloom....
I have been hooked ever since and have at least
ten plants. Their blooms have never ceased to
amaze me and give me joy
The Santa Barbara area climate is perfect for these
interesting plants. Our Local Santa Barbara Zoo has
many of these plants hanging in the Oak Trees as does
