We treated ourselves to a fancy hotel room at the Santa Barbara Inn with an ocean view for two nights, it was a retirement celebration after all.
The view from our hotel balcony! This was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed and well worth the splurge. It was about a one mile walk along the ocean to the wharf for a wonderful seafood dinner at the Fish House. Divine.
Perfect weather, perfect views. The next day we visited the Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens for some gardening inspiration.
Our interlude is over and we're back to Shadow and the chickens who have grown so much while we were gone. One of my hens turned into a rooster while I was away! Lots to do here and I'm itching to get started on a new quilt project.
Until next time.
