After leaving the campground we headed to Santa Barbara. We were able to park easily for free right down on the coast. They have free 90 minute parking on most of the streets around there and we found a spot big enough for us to fit. I am getting really good at my parallel parking though. Jared would probably point out that all the spots I have done it in are way bigger than needed but still. HAHA.
After getting the RV all parked we walked around Stearns Wharf. We are pretty sure that there was some sort of sailboat race going on. At least from what we could see from the wharf that is what it looked like. While walking on the wharf we watched some guy pull up a huge spider crab. I took a picture of it, it was massive
Jared wanted to check out the County Courthouse because they had an observation tower that gave us a great view of the city. The city was pretty crowded though because of a car show that had the main street of the city shut down to drivers. We finally found a spot in a parking lot and headed out for the courthouse. We went up though and got a great view of the city.
When we finished in the courthouse we headed down State St. to check out all the cars. There were tons of cars to check out. We spent some time looking at a bunch of them and checking out the town. It was a really cool place with tons of shops. After finishing up there we headed back to the RV to get on the road.
We were almost out of Santa Barbara and my cell phone started ringing. It was my mom and I hadn't talked to her in a week. We were having a great chat until I pulled up to a stop sign and a cop pulled up to the other stop sign. Apparently in California you can't be on your phone and drive
