quick trip to the american riviera...

It's gloomy and rainy here in Southern California today so I thought I would share a few pictures from last weekend when we took advantage of some perfect weather with a quick trip to Santa Barbara.  Santa Barbara is one of my favorite cities so I feel extremely lucky that we have family there so we can take random last minute trips up when we have a free weekend.

Here's a little recap of our trip.

Kicking off the weekend (and our trip) with a pretty drive up Highway 101...


Taking in the view from the pier with some fresh crab from the Santa Barbara Shellfish Company...



 Took a walk through the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden (which was really beautiful this time of year)...






After a stop for some ice cream at the locally based, McConnell's (I recommend the "Santa Barbara Strawberry" flavor), we checked out the view from Summerland's Lookout Park...


After some window-shopping on State Street and an amazing dinner at Los Agaves, we ended our day watching the sunset at Hendry's Beach (Arroyo Burro Beach Park)...
