Odd I did not think to check out the sunrise until our next to last day here. It was awesome! I arrived at the beach a couple of minutes before and enjoyed the scene and then....
Channel Islands in the distance, a few drilling platforms and kayakers stream by.
Water is still flowing from the mountains, into the ocean. Jack has had a great time at the beach, including some off leash time, romping in the waves.
We headed out for a 40 mile route I put together using Strava Heatmap. I've ridden several times in Santa Barbara but always up Gibraltar or a road that roughly parallels it, Painted Cave, always staying above the city. So.....
....the route included an extended distance on a bike path through UCSB. Interesting but wouldn't do that again. The path did have an actual roundabout, a first for us.
Unfortunately, I had a flat. Fixed it easily enough but I don't like riding without a spare tube so we cut the ride to 31 miles. The temperatures have been in the low to mid 60's for the day time highs and it's been a great visit.
