We just got back from an amazing few days in Santa Barbara.
We stayed at a beautiful hotel - right on the beach.
Our room faced the ocean and you could hear the waves pounding throughout the night.
I've never slept better (maybe the down bedding and chocolate mints on my pillow helped a bit).
I'm not the only one who wishes we could live here.
These girls could stand and stare at the ocean waves for hours.
That's Little K and her Best Bud (that we stole away for the weekend).
Our resort was simply Glorious
(the most over used word of the weekend - but the perfect way to describe everything around us).
I'm in love with the Spanish architecture and details.
Look at those beautiful tiles in our bathroom.
Notice the bath spigot? The water just flowed out of the wall...like magic.
Did I mention the overhead Rain Shower?
The Hotel grounds there were filled with secret gardens, lush flower filled planters and trickling fountains tucked around every corner.
More of those hand painted colorful tiles. Yes Please!
Check out this gigantic tree. We named him Ferdinand - because a tree that fantastic has to have an equally powerful name!
We did venture out one day to go Horse Back Riding.
This was my horse. His name was Chief - Scout - Major - Commander - or something that means person in charge, I never could remember.
Maybe that's why he didn't listen to me very well?
Hubby and Me - looking kind of spiffy after spending several hours on the back of a horse.
The weekend was also filled with...
Breakfast on the Veranda
...and lots more time frolicking on the beach!
Yes - I definitely think WE could live here in Santa Barbara.
