My hometown is Santa Barbara, one of my favorite places to visit. My boyfriend and I took the train up the coast way too early in the morning, got off with our massive suitcases (packed for one day's vacation) and walked straight to a bar. We took my parents dog Darwin for a walk on the beach and gave him a bath. On the way home he stuck his head out the window and fell asleep. Ahhh so cute. We got stuck at the train station and I pretended to rent a car and then we went to another bar with our suitcases (again). We ended up taking the train at midnight and you could see all the stars from our tiny carriage room. So beautiful, it was straight out of a movie. The moon reflected off the ocean and everything was dark dark blue. I didn't take any pictures of it, but I will next time, because I plan to take a lot of midnight train trips now.
