Sailing to Santa Barbara

Hi everyone– Have you been to Santa Barbara??– one of the prettiest towns in California.  It was a port on our recent cruise with our travel buddies, Paul & Sue.  Here were our favorite parts of our day there.

The Santa Barbara Historical Museum is a wonderful small museum– with art, artifacts and historical figures.  Fun to wander and read your way through…


The city center is full of historic beautiful remnants of Santa Barbara’s past.


We came upon the Regan Ranch Center, a sort of mini- Presidential Library, based on Regan’s nearby life at his ranch.


And we ended our day at the historic Santa Barbara Courthouse, climbing up the tower for city views and wandering through the gorgeous interior.



One last Santa Barbara Institution– McConnell’s Ice Cream!!  Thanks Paul & Sue for the best day out and about.

    • It is pretty Marcia– our west coast version of all your charming coastal towns. I think we’re going back in the fall to take our grand-girl on her 10th birthday trip (good zoo and children’s museum). Fun to hear from you! xox

    • Hi Lacey!! It’s probably to prettiest town along the coast here. 3 hours north of us, and we drove through on our way home from SF on Saturday to stop again for that great ice cream! How you feeling by now?? We are just back from traveling– I’m heading over right now to catch up on your posts! xox
