On Sunday 26th October we arrived in Santa Barbara. That evening we just went for a drive to check out where everything was and what the parking situation was in town, as we were a little too far out to walk. The main downtown area, State Street, looked really nice and pretty posh, and that led right down to Stearns Wharf and the main East and West …

No one really fancied a restaurant tonight, so I had remembered seeing a really smart British Fish and Chip shop in town so Mike and I went and got a load of these and we ate them in our room and watched telly.

Tomorrow is Reagan Library in Simi Valley.
