How can I describe Santa Barbara?... Quaint is one word that comes to mind, with its parks, picturesque lawns and gardens, prettily painted homes, and completely litter free. In fact as the kids played on the playground, I noticed a woman jogging through the park - she stopped to pick up an a bit of rubbish, and put it in the bin!
It really was quite perfect. To get there we travelled another almost perferct route through Santa Monica, Malibu along the gorgeous Pacific Coast.
Our first stop in Santa Barbara was The Mission - it is what they call the Soul of the City, established in 1786
Next up was a look at Stearns Wharf, which is a wooden pier with little gift shops and fish & chip eateries. A walk along the boardwalk that runs along the beach and we are off again, heading towards Slovang ..... great RV site with pool & hot tub. Nice.
