Santa Barbara is close to Californian Wine Country, so our stay was all about inspecting menus and listening to waiters drone on about how fabulous everything was.
The other thing about Santa Barbara is the beach, which is very long and is lined by enormous palm trees.
There are plenty of seabirds too, and for some bizarre reason, they like to line up and watch the waves coming off the sea.
The weather continued to be fabulous. Warm and dry, with beautiful sunsets most days.
Culture was available at the Santa Barbara Mission and Botanic Gardens.
I’m keeping the chat concise because I have a lot to catch up on. I’m sure you’re relieved.
