Quick! Take A Picture Of The Sunrise In Santa Barbara

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!

Sunset In Beautiful Santa Barbara

So I will be going off to college very soon and cant wait to move out of my parents house. I will be going to UCSB which is located in Santa Barbara, California. School starts in september but I will be moving up to Santa Barbara in August. I have many friends up there who say that the Santa Barbara sunset is the reason many of them live there.

They have been going on and on about the sunset Santa Barbara and how beautiful it is. They send me pictures of the sunsets and It makes me very anxious to want to get up there. I will be rooming with some fellow students who I don’t know, so it will be weird at first, but I know I will like it because our house is right across the street from the ocean and my bedroom will be facing it.

I will have a beautiful view of the sunset in the evening and will definitely keep my blinds open. My friends know my roommates and told me that they are really nice people. They told me that they hang out with them all the time and one of the cool things to do is to walk down to the beach in the evening and have bonfires while the sun is setting in Santa Barbara.

It will be hard to leave my parents and to be on my own for the first time ever but I know it will be a great experience and will be good for me. My parents have been really supportive of me and have even bought me all of my furniture for my new place. My mom will be really sad because we have always enjoyed the sunsets where we live now and I promised here that I will send her pictures of the Santa Barbara sunset all the time.

Here’s the first sunset picture I’ve taken in Santa Barbara.
