Santa Barbara, Saturday

It was time to get out of town!  Work has been a little nuts so a friend and I decided a quick weekend getaway to Santa Barbara was in order. We jumped in the car and headed out of LA Saturday morning.   First thing we hit State Street for some breakfast.  And any late breakfast is only complete with a couple of huge mimosas and a lovely view of the street.

Then it was time for some shopping.  We think we covered all the important stores on State Street.  After some successful purchases, we headed to the hotel.  No rest for the wicked though and shortly after we decided to walk down to the pier.  I was craving some clam chowder.  The wind was really crazy so we didn't stop along the way.  I almost couldn't believe how hard it was blowing.  Along the way we passed one wedding on the beach and these buckets of flowers.  Just set out for free.

On the pier, we decided to wait to get a table at the Santa Barbara Shellfish Co.  We had a lovely lunch with one startling guest.

After that it was time for another wine tasting and then a few bars on State Street.  We've had a lovely evening and now it's getting close to bedtime.  Tomorrow we're going to head to the mission and then home. (after perhaps a little more shopping)

This is a short trip, but hang tight my friends, Barcelona will be here before you know it.  After that work week, we'll be heading to Scotland for a week of fun and scotch.  Stay tuned!
