Today was our last day in Santa Barbara and we were really sad to be leaving. More importantly, today was a very sad and poignant day for America remembering those who lost their lives in the horrific 9/11 attacks. The mood was more sullen around the town and a beautiful tribute had been laid out on the beach.
We decided on our last day to rent bikes and drive along the beaches to capture the beauty of Santa Barbara for the last time. We rode past West Beach, Stearns Wharf and the Harbor and up the hill, where we could see views of the beautiful town, sea and the mountains behind. I was going to miss this place!
