Santa Barbara Photo Diary

Santa Barbara Photo Diary (Last Updated On: July 22, 2019)

After spending three wonderful months in Santa Barbara, I wake up every day CRAVING to go back.  There is beauty at every corner.  From palm trees, mountains, and the ocean.  To clean streets, sunshine, and wildlife.  All the wine you could wish to drink.  Plus tasty food at every corner.  This post is to inspire you to visit the perfectly quaint town of Santa Barbara. Keep scrolling to see Santa Barbara photos.

Always beautiful, Santa Barbara is particularly beautiful at sunset.

Sunshine all the time – East beach.

Welcoming you to Santa Barbara, see the rainbow colored chromatic gate upon arrival.

Sunrises and sunsets.  Particularly amazing from the boardwalk.

Sunset against the San Ynez Mountains; turns the mountains a shade of pink.

West beach views.

One of the most dog friendly beaches – Hendry’s Beach.  Stay for cocktails at the Boathouse.

Sailboats and yachts galore!  Watch them take off from the Santa Barbara sailing center.
