Carpinteria is just south of Santa Barbara, CA and just north of Ventura (San Buenaventura, actually) and was so named for the Chumash group there who built canoes (hence - "carpenter's shop") using locally available tar to seal their boats. I lived in Ventura for about 5 years and we used to visit Carpinteria quite a bit. Formerly the home of Joseph "Follow Your Bliss" Campbell, they used to bill themselves as "the World's Safest Beach" which always seemed an invitation for disaster to me!
