Once I hit the coast, it was just a matter of following the 101 along the coast, past pretty state beaches at Gaviota, Refugio and El Capitan, before Coromar and Gaviota signal the start of Santa Barbara. As ever, a map was superfluous in the land of the helpful - paused by the side of road looking for my turn-off to catch the coastal route into town, a black-windowed SUV rolled up next to me, the window sliding done to reveal a stunningly beautiful woman asking me if I was lost - a real pleasure.
Dinner was at the expensive but awesome Sojourners Vegetarian Cafe, then a few drinks at a back street bar recommended by my server, and I was done, annoyed only by the fact that I had to leave tomorrow.
