Do you know Unknown Mami? She's awesome and she created a fun Sunday theme inviting you to get out and take pictures of your city to share with the rest of us. Click here for details and her logoand click here to see Unknown Mami's City today.
In the Montecito foothills of Santa Barbara, California sits the beautiful San Ysidro Ranch.
It's not a "ranch" with cowboys and cattle, it's actually a gorgeous resort hide away for the rich and famous. John and Jackie Kennedy honeymooned here and Vivien Leigh and Sir Laurence Olivier were married here. The day I strolled around after lunch, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia diRosso were checking in.
It's easy to see why anyone would want to stay in one of their guesthouses, cabanas or villas. You can see the Pacific Ocean from your front door.
Registration is very inviting. They have fresh squeezed lemonade waiting for you as you register. I had some before they realized I wasn't actually checking in.
You can dine at one of the Ranch's restaurants on this. They have a big Chef's Garden that they pull produce from on a daily basis.
Walking the property is lovely and peaceful and no one called security on me.The mountains are stunning too.
And the lavender.... Can you smell it? I could-- ACHOOOOOO!How's your Sunday?
