Day 5: California Love...

27th December, Tuesday

Highway to Heaven

Sunny new day in California. We were refreshed after getting some rest the previous night. Drove down the Pacific Coastal Highway to Santa Barbara. Memories came flooding back from my first trip on the PCH with Maddy Pai. I *LOVE* this highway cos it’s got cliffs on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. Malibu is another beautiful “town” along this highway. Pepperdine University is located on the intersection of the Malibu Canyon Rd and PCH…with sweeping views of the ocean and the coastline. How those kids get any work done is beyond me. I would love to sign up for some courses there though! Ha!

Of sunsets and beaches…

Picturesque beaches, old fashioned pier with quaint shops, a façade lined by tall palms with a backdrop of misty mountains….that was Santa Barbara. After spending a very exciting evening at the pier, we explored downtown Santa Barbara. A really cool way to get around here was to use tricycles and golf carts, which were available for rent. Since we are of the ‘walk when you can’ philosophy, that’s exactly what we did. Ate at an Indian restaurant, grabbed some coffee, shopped a little…basically had a good time. Watched ‘My Wife’s Murder’ when we got back home and tucked in to the warmth of our beds.
