Mountain And Valley Views...
Rachel and I are spending a couple nights in Santa Barbara in a hotel on the beach. We couldn't afford the room with the ocean view, but mountiain and valley views sounded pretty good to us. When we got into our room yesterday, the first thing I did was hustle over to the sliding door to check out the view. Our mountain and valley view is really a view of the alley, dumpsters and run down apartment buildings behind the hotel. If you wretch your neck far enough to the left, you can catch a glimpse of the mountains...the 'valley' is nowhere to be seen.
No big deal, the hotel is fine and we really aren't in our room much because we're taking advantage of the beautiful weather and the convertible we borrowed from a friend.
