    Good place just off the beach

    Very nice, but basic Inn more or less on the beach - only the boulevard between. Although basic, Cabrillo Inn provides what you need in terms of room fascilities etc. The Inn is around 1 mile or so away from Sterns Warf, and another mile or so up State Street to the main shopping areas. Overall good location if you come by car as it still allows you to easily get to a good selection of nightlife and shopping opportunities. Parking is limited, but can be found both right off Cabrillo Boulevard as well as at the Inn office. Continental breadfast is included in the price, but be aware that these breakfasts are very basic so if you got you mind set on a massive buffee this is not it. Still good for some basic energy in the morning bagels and pastry, a few juice options and surprisingly good coffee.

    Overall, a very good choice while you explore Santa Barbara.

    ... There are fish restaurants and shops all built of wood and painted different pastel colours. We walked to the end at dusk and ate at Moby Dick`s restaurant which was very good. Excellent fish. Most bars and restaurants seem to have a range of craft beers, rather like real ales at home, which we have to sample!
    From here it was back to the hotel for coffee and another game of cards. Gill is still losing!!

    Day 53: Chicken, Wine, and Hamburgers

    A travel blog entry by nikl_us on Oct 23, 2014

    ... The fat kid moment of the night came at American Ale, where we tried a Peanut Butter and Jelly hamburger. I don't know if it was the wine/beer mix talking, but that thing was delicious. Sweet jam, salty hamburger, and delicious peanut butter was a winning combo, and verified by Lizzie (who doesn't drink), so it must've been legit. A great night with friends, and probably my last bit of travel before I head home ...

    ... level and there was a ranch with cattle and elk. We saw a rock which looked like at lion( well I thought so anyway) and at Point Piedras Blancas we came upon hundreds of Elephant Seals on several of the beaches. Apparently there are about 16000 in the area after having been almost extinct caused by whale hunters killing the seals for their blubber. The road moved away from the coast a little and there were many ranches. At Morro Bay there ...

There is so much more of SB that we want to see - this is such a cool place to visit but we don't have enough time. Back to the hotel for a quick change about 5pm and then off ...

    ... is primarily for fishing while mine is for lounging in the sun. We'll see who wins in this difference of opinion.

    The restaurant we chose was called Brophy Bros. Seafood and it was packed. The wait for two people on a Monday night was over 30 minutes, but there was a clam bar downstairs that we could sit in and have a drink or some clams while we waited. When we went downstairs to sit and wait, we noticed a group of people on ...
