Nothing starts the day off better than a beautiful sunrise topped with fresh bread and a steaming cup of great coffee. But a walk along the pier made it even a bit better.

Santa Barbara is not immune to the homeless. We have found them all over. It does make you a little on edge. Last night upon arriving at our hotel, I found the last parking spot which to my horror had sleeping bags within 5 feet of my door. But to my horror, going out this morning to walk the pier, two men were within two feet of my door. Fortunately, they ignored me as I did them.

Have not seen the variety of wildlife here, but those birds create a huge racket at all hours. They seem to like to chatter all the time. There is a pool across the street that has children in it all day and as soon as they vacate, it becomes a huge birdbath and gathering place to share the day's events.

Food is very good. However, I would not like looking at the critter Di had on plate last night. It has eyes staring at me. My plate of risotto with prawns had the eyes removed. I don't like food looking back at me.

Sunset last night was incredible. I quickly pulled off the road to take a couple of pictures. Everyone here must be used to tourists gawking about all the time. Different vistas appear at every corner.
