Last Day in CA

Well, this was actually 3 weeks ago…  I finally got around to looking at some of the pictures I took…

On the day before my flight, I was in LA and decided to drive up the coast.  I went all the way to Santa Barbara.  While there I spent some time at the Stearns Wharf, where I had lunch and also saw some pelicans.  They were interesting birds, really big.

It was a rather cloudy, foggy, and somewhat chilly most of the way between LA and Santa Barbara.  Quite a change from the mostly cloudless weather in the desert.  Not sure if that type of weather is normal for the shoreline, I did recall that when I arrived in LA that it was cloudy too…

On the way back, I stopped at the Santa Monica Pier, which I’ve been to.  I thought about getting something to eat nearby but ended up eating at a Pinkberry I happend to see on my way after leaving the pier.  Then I saw another…  And I decided to see if I could find someplace to eat at a shopping area I had seen the previous day, and I saw yet another Pinkberry and got a shaved ice to eat in my hotel room 🙂

The view from the roadside between Santa Barbara and LA.

My Ford Fusion rental, after a month without washing.  This was definitely one of the better rental cars I’ve driven.  It felt a bit heavy but there was definitely sufficient power there due to the V6 engine.  It felt like an improved Taurus…

The car had only about 40 miles when I got it, it took me about 20 miles before I managed to reset the trip counter…  Which means I drove about 3440 miles total.  Quite a bit of driving over a month…
