I had a chance to get away for a drive up the coast with my hubby last week. One of the wonderful things about the California coastline is the endless miles of sandy beaches ready to take your breath away.
October is one of the absolute best times to get in the car and take in the beauty of the Pacific Ocean.
We have this little out of the way Mexican food kitchen in the small beach town of Carpenteria that makes the best Carnitas burritos that we always stop at for lunch.
It also happens to be a block away from the ocean so we picked up our burritos and headed for a picnic table in the sand.
The great thing about October is that while the temperatures are still in the 80's, the crowds are minimal (with the exception of a group of middle age men playing volleyball in their 1970's too short silk shorts...nuff said on that subject).
After enjoying our lunch amidst the cool ocean breezes we got back in the car and headed for Santa Barbara.
I am not exaggerating when I say I took over 300 hundred pictures once we got there. I think I'll save those for another day (don't worry, not all 300).
