barts books.. the best outdoor bookstore ever!
boccali's roadside for pizza and boccali's rose syrah 'pink moment'. with a view of the vineyards across the way and a bottle of this, i think i'm lost somewhere in the mediterranean
coolest new shop: summer camp, from a converted gas station (boccali's was once a gas station too)
farmer and the cook for carrot cake and chai tea. (love this place).
then onward with a short stop and stretch in the mountains of santa barbara
