Sunlight. Sandy Beach. High mountain as backdrop. Blue Pacific Ocean. Clean (no advertising sign board).
I liked the blue sky without any cloud. Here is not as humid as tropical beaches.
They said Santa Barbara county has such good weather all year long. Thus it attracts the rich people, tourist, as well as hippies. I saw few visiting RVs (recreational vehicle) and Volkwagens with interest deco on the beach.
To some people, this place could be the heaven. To me, heaven can be any place where your heart wishes to be. Behind the bright sunlight, there was dark shadow of Tsunami and earthquakes. So the richer residents stay on the hill, and tourist resort on the beach. May the dark day never comes to this sunny state.
