Hidden small city before heading to Santa Barbara! Sunsets were amazing! Tar still active and full bloom of flowers on the walking path towards the beach. Most interesting beach to find tree barks on stacked all over!

We spent some time walking along the beach front. The wharf with the restaurants on was special. We had lunch at one of the many eateries there and just chilled.
