Today my almost 4 week long round trip through California ended – with rainy and quite cold weather in Santa Barbara I  spent about two hours in the morning to walk around downtown, where the highlight is the old county courthouse. This phenomenal building is still used as a court today, but you can go up on the tower and have a look at the court room. After that, I went to the beach and had a short look at Stearns Wharf, a pier with a lot of shops and restaurants. The most interesting thing there were a lot of pelicans that could be seen all over. At about noon I had to leave and drive to Los Angeles airport, where I returned my rental car and took the journey home over London Heathrow.
