Last sunset of 2016

Ride our bikes along the shoreline park. Amazing views of the sea and mountains. Stopped at the skateboard park for entertainment.

We parked in one of the free lots, it was mid-week so easy. On weekends I think it gets very busy. Great walking in both the park and surrounding neighborhood. Spectacular views from the park out to the ocean and around. Nice way to spend some time.

We decided to take a little ride to Stearns Wharf. We drove the beach route stopped for a bit. The views are wonderful. You can drive out on the pier which is pretty cool.

Walk the beach or walk the path and soak in the shoreline of Santa Barbera. What a view. Its a must do if visiting.

A little different than getting down in the sand and water. We watched surfers and paddle boards out in the small surf and about a quarter mile or so off shore a sail boat race. Nice breeze. Probably around 12 to 15 knots. Sails full but boats not to heeled over. Shore line is a bit rough. Jagged type rocks... More

Very quaint and peaceful marina. We saw a seal and many birds not seen back in the UK. Lots of mosaics along the walk and public toilets. Many recast aura to, bars and hotels to choose from.

We visited on a sunny day in November after a long morning driving the PCH we wanted to stretch our legs for a couple of hours. This was a lovely walk offering amazing views! Very relaxing and picturesque.

A great place to find a beach cruiser bike rental and just go up and down the path watching the people. Minimal stops along the way for refreshments on the east side so make sure you plan accordingly. Just a perfect way to spend the afternoon.

Everyone visiting Santa Barbara should stop by this park for at least a few minutes to take in the views.
