    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.

    ... was recommended to us called Carlitos, it was only a 10 min walk from our motel. We sat outside surrounded by fairy lights and a great atmosphere. The waiter decided to make a little joke about Joanna's sunburn which she was not impressed with lol! Huge portions as always and fantastic Nachos. After finishing our food and cocktail we headed back for an early night in readiness for our road trip to Las Vegas the next day... ...

    ... residential area above the ocean. Stunning houses in large gated grounds. How the other half live!! Back onto the right road (and reality) we find a sandwich shop and return to the hotel. The afternoon is spent lazing around the pool in the sunshine. Very relaxing.
    We eventually drag ourselves off the sun beds, shower and drive downtown to eat. We dine in a Mexican restaurant where the service is very slow, only ...

    ... It was then or never as I was driving myself crazy wondering whether to do it or not. It didn’t actually hurt, just made my eyes water, but I couldn’t stop laughing after, bit of a random thing to do!

    It was time to chill after that so we walked back to the beach and relaxed for a couple of hours in the lovely sunshine then walked back up the other side of State Street, where there were a few high street brand shops we could look in. I bought a ...

    ... I guess. Sometimes they would flip sand over their backs and some rough housed with each other, some went for a dip in the was an amazing sight and we watched for about 15 minutes at their antics. The drive from here was fairly flat and we made good time the last twenty miles or so to Morro Bay. We arrived there in time to watch the sunset over Morro Rock. We then found our hotel which was just a block off the beach and went out for a small bite to ...

    Hi guys!

    Long time no see! I didn't post an article last week because I didn't do anything really interesting to talk about. I spent my days off on the beach and walking on State Street... the usual.

    On Saturday, Ty and her family brought me to Camarillo to go shopping at the Camarillo Premium Outlets. Ty is a woman who works in the Education Department at the museum. She is the one with whom I ate ...
