Died and gone to heaven

What more can a Brit ask for? We find ourselves in a hotel just off State Street in Santa Barbara, CA, and within 100 yards are several pubs including a micro-brewery and several excellent places to eat including an Indian restaurant (and it's very good as well!). Oh, I guess the "authentic" British fish and chip shop should be included as well although this is the only "authentic" chippie I've ever seen that sells clam chowder and I didn't see mushy peas on the menu. But I'm told it's very good!

Lunch here was rather splendid as well!

The evening started with a quick sunset visit to Carpinteria Beach to see the oil rigs but they didn't spoil the view fortunately. What a beautiful way to see off 2010 and welcome 2011.

Happy New Year everyone!
