We needed a vacation, so decided to head up the coast for a long weekend. We spent Saturday in Shell Beach at The Cliffs Resort. After checking in, we went for a nice 25 mile bike ride around San Luis Obispo, then relaxed in the jacuzzi, before heading to dinner.

Sunday morning had us out for an early morning 11 mile run, then off to a delicious buffet brunch. We spent the rest of the day slowly working our way down the coast, stopping at various spots to enjoy the coastal views (and watching for sea otters). Late that afternoon we checked into our hotel in Carpinteria, before heading out for a lovely sushi dinner.

Monday morning was spent on a pleasant 15 mile bike ride (and very wobbly short run immediately afterward), followed by coffee and pastries. We next made our way down to the Carpinteria Seal Sanctuary (where the seals were out nursing newborns). Afterward, it was back to Santa Barbara for an afternoon at the Presidio, lunch at Sojourner Cafe, and a stroll on State Street, before finally making the short drive back to Los Angeles.
