For breakfast we ate guava cheese pastries that we had picked up the day before at Porto’s. After breakfast, we walked down to the beach again (in our jammies), just because we could.

After packing up, we drove less than ten minutes to check out UCSB, which is actually in Isla Vista.
I liked all of the art installations on campus.
School was not in session, but there were a lot of bicyclists and skateboarders. There are lanes for bicycles, skateboards, and pedestrians. We actually witnessed an accident between two bicyclists. It must get real crazy when classes are going on.
There was a bell tower with an elevator, but the elevator was not in operation.
We made a rest stop at the University Center. Outside there is a view of the lagoon.
The bookstore had an impressive Hello Kitty selection. I wonder if Cal has Hello Kitty stuff now too?
Finally, we headed back to the Visitor’s Center.
This large koi fish surprised us!
Next, we had a two-part lunch near campus.
First, we split a chicken burrito at Freebirds.
It was good, but nothing out of the ordinary; kind of like Chipotle. I know that people love this place—did we order the wrong thing?
UCSB’s version of People’s Park—haha.
Part II of our lunch was at Pizza My Heart, which we used to go to in Los Gatos.
One “Big Sur” slice and one pepperoni. The Big Sur had tons of roasted garlic, which D and I both enjoyed.
We picked up an agave latte for the road at a café called Caje.
A little too sweet for our taste, but the espresso was nice.
It was a short, but fun trip. We’re ready to say goodbye to summer!
