    Our Least Favourite Campsite (and most expensive)

    We went to this campground on a recommendation from a fellow camper. It was sadly, not what we expected. We paid $60 for a small parking lot space with a picnic table and a fire pit and no space for anything more. We were right on the ocean though but this meant that people walked right through our spot to get to the beach. People were sunbathing on the pavement. Absolutely no privacy and barely room for our folding chairs. We drove to another parking lot in order to cook our breakfast in peace and with a little room. The view of the ocean was lovely but the area is known for its surface tar on the beac, so it smelled pretty badly. This campsite was our least favourite, and the most expensive, of our whole trip.

    Carp Beach - a little of everything!

    Since I live in a coastal hamlet in Northern California, one could wonder why I keep coming back to the quaint beach hamlet of Carpinteria. The biggest reason is that it probably the best camping beach in California - sea and sand within feet of your camp spot - great food and drink within a couple of blocks. The folks here are great, too. It's my favorite jumping off point when I head south and then east to the deserts of Southern California and Arizona. The only downside is that it can be crowded on the weekends - but it's a big beach - lots of room to spread out!

    ... Dad's beach house. The house was gorgeous and the views out to the beach were just a amazing! Brad & Caroline arrived a couple of hours after us so after catching up for a while we went for a walk along the beach at night. The next day we headed for breakfast in Santa Barbara and then went to do a bit of sightseeing. All of the buildings are gorgeous and there's a real Spanish look to them. We had a look at City Hall and then ...

    ... off, but was not able to get over the terror of that first day. They never did become friends. Miranda took us downtown to show us around. We met her boyfriend, Tyson, for lunch at Rusty's Pizza. Parlor. It was delicious! Tyson had football practice all afternoon, so we parted ways and began to explore the downtown shops. We had a great time talking about anything and everything ...
