There I was wondering what could we do for my girlfriend’ birthday. Where can we go for a weekend adventure? She suggested Santa Barbara and it was done. No negotiations needed. I was sold.
Santa Barbara, California is one of those places that makes you just want to enjoy the leisure, laid back vibe. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know I’m a sucker for palm trees and a beautiful sunset. And let me tell you, there were no shortages of either in Santa Barbara.
As far as activities, my girlfriend and I joined a tour--but before you read this and think "Oh, god. You did all the touristy stuff, didn't you?" As a matter of fact, we didn't quite do all the touristy stuff. What we did do was EAT. We joined a tour called "Eat This, Shoot That". It was for a love of food and photography that made this tour the perfect little adventure, which was amazing because it allowed us to try so many little local eateries, breweries, wineries, and all the other -eries. And on top of the food aspect, it was also a little iphone-ography education. So along with all that and the glorious palm trees and Spanish architecture—let me tell you. Actually I’ll just show you. ;)
Of course, I had to take couple of photos of the birthday girl.
(Babe, 31 looks good on you! <3)
