Hilton By The Sea 1972

Click on pic for larger image

My first home when I moved to Santa Barbara in 1971 was the Hilton by the Sea, at 15 Chapala. This was just a half a block from Cabrillo Blvd and the beach there. Stearns Wharf was a block down the street. This was a wonderful place and over time many friends of mine rented apartments here and we had a time, not to mention catching some great surf days across the street off the end of the breakwater at the harbor entrance.
On winter evenings I would go out after work and surf till sunset and paddle back across the harbor in the dark. I would walk back to my place and take off my wet suit in my nice hot shower!
