Santa Barbara Highlights

The lovely Spanish architecture of Santa Barbara, California

I love the red tiled roofs and Spanish architecture of Santa Barbara and the fact that there are no high rises--
Santa Barbara farmer's markets

Best way to shop for food is at the many farmer's markets in SB--beautiful veg, fruits, and fresh eggs-

Sandhi wines, producers of lovely Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Los Olivos near Santa Ynez
I ventured into Santa Barbara's wine country for a day of tasting. Stand outs were Alta Maria wines (I have their Pinot Noir and Savignon Blanc on my list--but also liked their Cab) and Sandhi wines--Pinot Noirs were my favorites--very floral and pretty. Hope to travel north for more wine tasting on my next trip--
