Nice hotel right across the street from the harbor. Good location, walk everywhere. Room was comfortable, clean, dated design and only one elevator, but overall, good value.

Deze morgen wakker geworden en het was goed aan het regenen. Tijdens het ontbijt hebben we beslist om niet naar Nappa Valley te gaan, maar in een keer richting Santa Barbara te rijden. De auto konden we ophalen om 11.30. Santa Barbara ligt op een 6 uur rijden, zo moeten we morgen maar een 2 uur rijden voor we in Los Angeles aankomen. We hebben het …

We finished the night at a wonderful restaurant Amir found called Bouchon. Amir ordered french onion soup and sea bass and ...
... as the humped backs had moved south from yesterday. We headed off in search on the Condor Express. After just a few minutes, we were surrounded by hundreds of common dolphins, all eager to keep up with and to race the boat! After less than half an hour later, we were rewarded with our first humped back whales, a mother and calf. We followed them for quite some time, and then, without warning, and very close to the boat, we were ...
