Coming into Santa Barbara
Can you believe that The Boyfriend suggested we sleep in and not do Gibraltar Road when we arrived in Santa Barbara. Shocked I tell ya, shocked. Our legs were, well, maybe just mine were spent from climbing Mt. Baldy two days in a row, so, it was a welcome relief.
We did a leisurely 20 mile ride that took in the rich areas of Montecito and ended up at the pier. Being Santa Barbara, the weather was lovely. Smart decision to take it easy and give our bodies a rest. In the evening, we ate at our favorite Italian restaurant. Saturday morning, we also discovered Jeanne's, a great breakfast and bakery with Peet's coffee that we visited before heading off to Solvang. The drive to Solvang is peaceful and worth doing.
