When Margot asked what I wanted for my birthday this year - I said "A road trip to Santa Barbara!"
So last week we went. Our friend Dawn from Port Townsend was down visiting and volunteered to do the driving which was a big treat. We started with breakfast at Tupolo Junction. Cheese/Jalepeno grits in a shrimp and lobster gumbo along with a creamy latte and fresh squeezed orange juice. My-my!
Then a look around Anhropologie, no big fancy displays
this time around, but always fun to peruse
A view up State Street towards the Granada Theatre.
Then the shopping began - Tienda Ho,
The Random Store and boy is it ever!
The truly amazing Art From Scrap.
A stop by the beach to rest, where we saw a Peregrine Falcon having lunch.
The ever fascinating Antique Alley,
And a late lunch at El Bajio (La Super Rica was closed, but found this to be a great substitute). In the next blog I'll show you my scores from the various shops!
