Former First Lady Laura Bush is on the South Coast today for a private speaking engagement.

Bush arrived at Santa Barbara Airport this morning. She had a law enforcement escort as she was driven from the airport to Goleta, where she was set to speak at a grocer’s convention at the Bacara Resort and Spa.

Bush was First Lady from 2001 to 2009. Polls showed the now 69 year old woman was one of America’s most popular First Ladies.
