Ah, Santa Barbara! Sure, I could say we visited for the cute downtown but who would we be kidding? It was all for the pinot noir. Though our wine tasting travails were limited, they were quite fruitful. It was for this reason, and this alone, that we had packed two coolers. One is for ice and food. The other is for wine.

That night, we camped out at Cachuma Lake Park. If you ever questioned if California is in a drought, visit Cachuma Lake Park. The lake is supposed to be a reservoir, though it might better be described as wetlands for all the water that is in there at the moment. All the same, there was a downpour that night and we felt vindicated in camping in our metal tent.
