Moore Mesa Mini

More Mesa is on the coast just east of the State Beach, and U.C.S.B. A hundred years or so or more, before they built Stearns Wharf in Santa Barbara, there was a pier called Moore's Landing out here. The estuary in Goleta would have probably been a more natural place to put the local harbor, but back in those days men were real men and the were into bending nature to their will. Or so they thought. Plus in those days it was no quick 5 minute freeway drive to get from More mesa to Santa Barbara. It probably took half the day to make the trip, so there were a lot of reasons why they thought it was a better place to out the pier and harbor
