About the Host, Carla
My family and I love Santa Barbara and all the area has to offer. This summer we have enjoyed some great musical performances at the Santa Barbara Bowl. The best seats are near the top as your can take in views of the ocean, sip wine and hear some great music.
While Santa Barbara has some amazing restaurants, we love to dine outside under the stars in our own backyard after picking up some fresh ingredients from Lazy Acres Market just up the road.
Our favorite morning activity-a walk to the beach picking up coffee along the way. The Mesa steps down to the beach are a great work-out, or just walk up to the Boathouse for a hearty breakfast. Our favorite - the breakfast burrito.
