Our next port of call was Santa Barbara. We arrived at dawn:
A trolley tour through the hillsides took us 'near' where some famous people 'sometimes stayed', 'used to live', or 'once built'. I would be quite happy to never hear the name Ty Warner (the creaator of beanie babies) ever again.
We drove past the famous 'most beautiful courthouse ever':
and stopped at the mission to admire even more of the Santa Barbara signature architecture:
Most welcome view? Our cruise ship at anchor:
In spite of it being touted for the history, architecture and the famous residents of the past - most of the tour got out to shop at the mall. Nothing special, just another American mall. Sigh.
