Postcards from the US - Day 3

Santa Barbara is the most beautiful place in the Californian Coast with its nature, perfect climate and friendly people.

We also have been amazed by the food .

And a visitor came by near the restaurant: a seal, so cute!

and lots of pelicans, a whole family right there out of the window, flying with their long wings and taking the fisherman´s fish away...

This was the restaurant´s window view

Walking and trying to get closer to Santa Barbara´s life

then leaving and going to Solvgang , a Danish village in the mountains full of history , H C Andersen memories, gift shops and chocolateries...

A very typical town where we stayed for 1 hour and we looked around , had some hot coffee served with danish rolls to warm our soul ...

... took some pictures and since we had a long way up to Monterey we left the town ,

and we went on the road again!

We saw some elephant seals on the beach, so amazing! Then we made a pit stop in the middle of the mountains called Ragged Point...

and passed through beautiful landscapes, spectacular views in Big Sur and finally we got to our next hotel destination at Marina , Monterey by the Bay. Unfortunately we didn´t stop at Nepenthe because of the weather , it was very rainy and it was getting dark and we were a little bit tired so we was desperately seeking for a comfort bed... Maybe next time.
