I was off of work for a week and we did a lot of projects around the house. We decided to do a quick getaway and went to Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach. It was right on the beach, which was about 5 steps from our room, which was wonderful. If it weren't so cold and windy, it would have been much more enjoyable. I did take photos the entire weekend. We walked to the Channel Islands Harbor, watched the sun set on the beach, and went to the Santa Barbara Zoo.
