We’ve settled in at the Hotel Mar Monte in Santa Barbara and as is becoming a clear pattern, I am pooped. We got up around 8am this morning in Monterey, had a killer breakfast at The Trailside Cafe, spent a few hours wandering the awesome Monterey Bay aquarium, meandered along 17 Mile Drive in Pebble Beach, braved the cliffs and sharp turns of Big Sur, had a few quick beer samples at Firestone Walker brewery in Paso Robles and some good pizza just down the street at Griff’s Pizzeria and Bistro and made the 2 hour drive in the dark to Santa Barbara.
It’s been a long, busy day.
We’re about 100 miles from Los Angeles, and that’s tomorrow’s destination. We’ll get started early and probably spend most of the day in LA. We haven’t decided if we’ll sleep there tomorrow or if we’ll continue on.
Till then, I am updating all five posts so far with pictures from that day, so check em out!
