More of Santa Barbara
The Bay Road House Bar and Grill used to be a Fish market. The fish is all fresh and delicious, the ambiance is relaxing and friendly. Love the casual decor, it is a collection of antique marine items including an old scuba diving suit and the walls are littered with old license plates from all over the country, cute.

Hanging out in Santa Barbara
We had lunch at this great little restaurant Sur La Table which is located in this charming  patio corridor with overgrown vines that have become part of these magnificent old buildings. The old Spanish influence in all the architecture throughout Santa Barbara is just beautiful.

I am a sucker for old stoves and this I'd just die to have.
