“What’s great about Santa Barbara (34°24’19.30”N 119° 41’29.27”W) is it has so much to offer. It is a beautiful, old Spanish-flavored city and there is something magical about the light here.” Scheer keeps a sailboat in Santa Barbara. “The harbor is unique — it has a commercial fishing fleet alongside multimillion-dollar yachts and a racing fleet, as well as the old live-aboards. ... Orca is right next to the transient dock, and I have seen cruisers from all over the world spend a night or two and fall under the spell of the Santa Barbara coastline.” This haven of tranquility is located just 90 miles from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, yet there are festivals, the famous sidewalk art sales, whale watching, kayaking, mountain climbing and horseback riding. “If you can think of it, you can find it in Santa Barbara,” Scheer promises. For good places to eat and drink in the harbor, she recommends world-famous Endless Summer Bar Cafe and Brophy Bros.
