••• New from the Montecito Trails Foundation: unfolded poster-style trail maps ($30) for displaying as art. “The poster is two-sided, so buy two or change sides from time to time to display the map and the informative back descriptions of the trails.” Nice idea for a guest room, to inspire houseguests to spend time elsewhere.
••• “I drove on Channel Drive for the first time in weeks today,” reported D. the other day. “It’s obvious the cormorants from Summerland have found two new roosts. One in a tree at the Biltmore, the other down the street at Butterfly Lane. Dang, talk about a shit show.” Update 5/1: The owner of a Channel Drive property began cutting down a eucalyptus tree where the birds were nesting, reported KEYT, but it was paused “when concerned residents said nesting birds were ‘frantic.'”
••• Kevin Moore Architect posted on Instagram that the company is working on the former Mackenzie Market building at 3102 State Street and confirmed that it’s not getting torn down, as I feared. No word though on what the building’s next life will entail.
