Greetings from Santa Margherita


Julie and Tom Hinkle (pictured) decided to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary in beautiful Santa Margherita and brought a copy of The Santa Barbara Independent along with them so they could say hello to their friends from our pages. Strangely enough, while Julie was out for a run one morning along the famous Italian Riviera, she literally bumped into some fellow Santa Barbarans. To all the Hinkles’ friends not visiting the Cinque Terre: Tom and Julie say hello!
