Honeymoon Day Two: First Day in Santa Barbara

We woke up very hungry and decided to go to a the closest location, the East Beach Grill, for breakfast. It was around a five minute walk and was right on the beach. We had delicious pancakes, strawberry for me and blueberry for Seth.

We then walked on the beach a little. The weather was beautiful - in the upper sixties. We waded in the Pacific, which was a lot of fun because it was Seth's first time. We then went back go the motel and cleaned up and then took the bus into town.

The main street, State Street, basically has everything on it or directly off of it.

We did a bunch of shopping including in my favorite store, Lush. We also explored a tea store, Teavana, where Seth got me some tea that I am very excited to try. We also had a lovely lunch at an Italian restaurant, Pascucci's. We got a delicious tiramisu.

We also went to explore the wharf at the end of the street, Stearns Wharf. There were shops and restaurants. The view was amazing. The town is situated between the ocean and the mountains, so everywhere you look there are rolling hills in the near distance.

We had dinner at Moby Dick, a restaurant on the wharf. Seth was able to get some seafood there, and I had a nice grilled cheese. We'd had a big lunch, so this was perfect.

We had a nice walk back to the motel along the path that runs along the beach for biking, skating, and walking. We the spent the evening relaxing and making plans for the next day.
