|View from Knapp's castle on the way from Santa Barbara to Santa Ynez|
This is the trip we did to Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez over the Xmas-NYE break, 2019. We stopped at a brewery in Oxnard and saw raspberry fields. Then we stopped at Tar Pits Park in Carpenteria. We stayed at the Hyatt at East Beach in Santa Barbara. Later we visited Santa Ynez valley. On the way to Santa Ynez we checked out the Chumash painted cave and Knapp's Castle, which is really just a ruin of someone's mansion, currently being rebuilt.
We also met our friend Donna in Los Olivos and went to several very good winery tasting rooms.
