Cute, back-in-the-day motel. Cheapest we Could find in Santa Barbara. Free, strong Wifi, free breakfast and parking. Coffee at breakfast was lovely, breakfast consisted of pastries, muffins and granola bars.
The rooms are clean and large enough for a few nights. The motel is situated about a ten minutes walk away from the pier and main area of Santa Barbara
Also have a cute spa/hot tub.
Would recommend. :)

It was dark out, so the only light was from the street lamps in the harbor, which cast a purple hue over the sea urchins as ...
Must say they are cute little devils. This one was eating a flower near the parking station. They are so lovely.
Ken dropped me downtown to shop by myself for a couple of hours. I went to macys which was great. Similar to myer but cheaper. Then went to a little store and grabbed some lollies for some people. Met Ken and we had a burrito each for lunch, very yummy. Of course far too much food. We could have shared.
Bit sad tonight. ...
... the sails. It was time to head into the marina at Santa Barbara and call it a day. One very long day. Coming into a strange harbor in the dark is not the easiest thing to do. The guide books say things like "don't attempt to enter at night, the lights of the city make distinguishing the harbor navigational lights hard to pick out." They are correct but nowadays we have all kinds of sophisticated electronic stuff on board and that helps. ...
... Once again in the Mojave Desert heading for Barstow, CA, (a stop on our way out on RT 66) we passed a Boron (20 mule team Borax) mine near the small town of Boron, CA. We began watching the thermometer in the car inch up to 90 then 95 and finally 100 degrees as we drove into Barstow.
No real surprises yet, gasoline ran close to $4.00 a gallon and city driving certainly lowered our mileage, but we only had to pay ...
