Christmas in Santa Barbara

Since we have no family here in CA, even though we were invited to others homes, we decided to go 'away' for Christmas.  At first we had reservations for a BnB but then acquired a new dog so motel it was.  La Quinta takes dogs so we stayed downtown Santa Barbara.  I ordered half a ham, made some small versions of our usual side dishes and packed them up.  We looked like the Clampetts in a Honda Si but whatever...

It was a very artful, pretty town.  The staff at La Quinta were friendly, helpful, and patient.  Brett was ill for a day and a half so Christmas was low key but still we had fun.  A walk to the wharf, a walk with Jenny to the nearest park, and a drive along Hwy 1, some shopping in a few great stores.  We had fish n chips at Mac's Fish n Chips and the best Cajun food we've had lately on the way back home.  I'll have to look up the name of the place.  It was wonderful!  I trust YELP and they never disappoint.

A few pics of the trip....

Jenny looking pitiful but actually she likes the kennel.

An older part of the road.  A fish ladder was underneath.

Cajun food.  OMG good.

Beautiful tiles
