For many years I have been coming to Beautiful Santa Barbara with my family. We usually will take long walks on the beach in ours skivvies, and my little brother likes to skip rocks over the salt water. Our favorite time to go is in the morning when we get to see the Santa Barbara sunrise over the ocean.
So this year during the summer we did the same thing, we drove up to Santa Barbara from our house in San Dimas. The drive up there is also one of our favorite parts because it is such a lovely journey. We all get really excited when we get to see the ocean on our left hand side and get to drive along the coast for about 40 minutes. Last post I was talking about the Santa Barbara Sunset but this post is all about the sunrise in Santa Barbara. Upon arriving in Santa Barbara we usually stop downtown and get a famous burger from The Habit. It’s one of our traditions to browse around on state street for a few hours.
We always stay at the same hotel which is right across the street from the beach, so we always get a beautiful view of the sunrise in the morning. After the sunrise my mom likes to cook us all breakfast and we eat it outside on the deck watching the sun set its course for the day. This morning we are waiting for the sunrise to appear over the sea and it is the first time we have seen the Santa Barbara sunrise since last year around this time. As we are waiting for it to come someone knocks at our door and we answer it and it is Mr. Brown. He likes to come watch the sunrise with us as well.
We are all sitting outside on the deck when we start to see it happening, and it is looking glorious and we realize that no one has a camera on them. I mean the whole point is to have a photo book of tons of Santa Barbara sunrise pictures and yet nobody has a camera on them. I see some guy walking across the street and and notice a camera hanging around his neck, I yell to him from across the street, “quick! Take a picture of that sunrise!
