Left this morning from Irvine. Watched the developing wildfire in Glendora, CA, heard about the two earthquakes overnight. The trip from Irvine (south of LA) to Santa Barbara (on the Pacific west of LA) took us probably three hours.

Solvang is a replica of a Danish town. We had lunch at the Solvang Restaurant, an original place that the locals favor. I had a Combination plate consisting of …

In the morning and out of character we just hopped in the front seats and drove up the coast, which was quite liberating. We got to Carpinteria and stopped in the town centre near some shops and restaurants. I showered (in the RV of course) and we headed across the road to an "ihop" for breakfast.

The next thing we know, some big tall fella packing a badge,a pistol and a taser says he wants to come aboard and put dye in our head (toilet.) He then hops aboard and instructs Rick to be sure the valve allowing the toilet to flush overboard is closed. Then he hands over a tablet to put into the head. Rick complies and then the fella turns ...

... glitzy Carmel, we weren't sure exactly what to expect nowadays. I loved it, and think that we were all charmed by the seaside feel of the old Fisherman's Wharf. The seafront has a gorgeous marina, full of harbour seals, as well as a pretty pebblestone beach, and the Wharf is packed with restaurants selling delicious clam chowder.
