Every year, Anthony and I take a little mini getaway for our anniversary. In September 2012 I did the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in SB and decided we needed to experience it as a couple.
The weekend started on Friday night, we arrived around 9 PM. The original plan was to go to downtown SB and go to a few bars, but were exhausted, so we ended up staying in for the night. The next day, we woke up, had our continental breakfast and headed to the Historic Santa Barbara Superior Courthouse.
Full and ready for a nap, we continued onto our next activity on the itinerary, wine tasting. We went to the Santa Barbara Winery located on Anacapa Street. They had a large selection for the tasting and they also had an olive oil tasting booth. Anthony is not one for wine, so we did not end up staying that long, but we had fun.
We headed back to the hotel for a nap after we went wine tasing and when we woke up, we headed out to dinner. We ate at a restaurant right on the beach at sunset, it was gorgeous. After dinner, we walked up the beach and back until the sun went down.
March 10, 2013 was the last day of our anniversary weekend in Santa Barbara. To start it off, we had a nice patio breakfast on a sunny spring day. I had the chocolate chip pancakes (my weakness) and he had regular pancakes. After breakfast, we were headed to the Santa Barbara Mission, but tours didn't start for two hours due to Mass. Waiting was not part of the itinerary and we had no idea what to do next.
