Take the train to Carpinteria – One friend takes the 9 a.m. train to Carp. There’s all the excitement of boarding and settling and just before the whole train-thing becomes dull, you’re in Carp, where the train lets you off right in the middle of downtown. You’re two blocks from one of the nations best beaches and two blocks away from Cajun Kitchen, the Snoutlet Piggy's Clothing and – most impressive of all – Robitailles candy shop. You can then take the 11 a.m. train back to Santa Barbara. Voila – you have an exciting morning.
