Santa Barbara is one of my most favorite places in California. I would love to live there one day. Our visit in this gorgeous seaside city was brief, we only had one night and one day. But we were lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend that one night at the Four Seasons! It was a blissful stay, that hotel is gorgeous! We ate breakfast out on the patio that had a wonderful view of the ocean.
Our day was spent seeing some of the city sites. Our fist stop was at the Santa Barbara mission. I had visited this beautiful church a few years ago while on a family vacation, and we happened to hit it right in the middle of their famous sidewalk chalk festival.

Our next stop was at the courthouse. The intricate Spanish tile is amazing.
That night we had dinner out on the patio of the hotel, with a splendid view of the sun setting over the ocean. The patio was lit by warm fire pits and candles. It was such a lovely evening, I never wanted to leave!
