Greetings from Santa Barbara. I'm having a blast on this trip so far and it's only day three (four if you count the day I spent entirely on a plane).

On Sunday we got to see quite a bit of San Francisco, had breakfast in the Castro and lunch at Fisherman's Wharf, overlooking the sea-lions, before driving down to Monterey and meeting [ profile] sleepherealone for dinner.

Monterey is so beautiful and got to see more of the amazing coastline on whale watching tour. I got to see Killers Whales and Grey Whales! It was such an incredible experience. I can't even explain how exciting it was. We went to the aquarium and then out to one of the beaches. I would seriously consider moving there... if I ever wanted to live in the US.

Today we drove down the coast to Santa Barbara. It was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. The views are breathtaking. California is so beautiful. The mountains and the trees and the coast. I'm so glad we came. Since arriving in SB I have let me geek side take over and we have had pineapple smoothies, taken photos of the police station, been to the top of the courthouse clock-tower and had dinner on the pier. My pina colada came in a whole pineapple that I have kept for posterity - or at least until it goes bad and I have to throw it away. We finished the day with a walk along the beach at sunset. I love this town.

More detailed info and photos when I get home. I'll update again the next time I have free internet. Tomorrow is a Disneyland day, so it's bedtime for me. Hope you're keeping well flist.
