20140305-181025.jpgSome of the most unexpected and impromptu stop-offs provide you with the moments you will remember most from your journey. On our 330 mile drive from Santa Barbara to San Francisco and then back again, we stopped at three of the 18th Century Spanish missions that dot the Pacific coast of California. Indeed there are 21 such Alta missions in the state, constructed on the northern portion of El Camino Real (“Royal” or “Kings Highway”) which is now modern-day U.S. route 101. The missions span from San Francisco to San Diego, with one of the largest and best maintained among them situated right here in Santa Barbara.
