Santa Barbara beach

For my final beach visit I felt it was appropriate to go with the beach that I have spent the most time at. I went to Santa Barbara City college and due to the insane amount of students the only place I could find a parking spot at was at the beach. Since I was always parked at the beach I ended up spending a lot of time there from early in the morning to late at night. I would sit in between classes on the beach to do homework or to relax. The weather in Santa Barbara was always really nice so being at the beach was the favorite part of my day. The beach itself is pretty small and has a little restaurant that is actually on the sand which is cool. When I first began going to go to school the beach was pretty wide and the ocean was a good distance away from the parking lot. It was also purely sand there were not many rocks or seaweed on the sand and many people would take walks along the beach. As the years went on the ocean began to rise and it slowly started to get closer and closer to the parking lot. Sometimes I would get to school and the parking lot would be wet and there would be seaweed all over it as well. The beach itself went from being nice and sandy to being covered in seaweed and sticks. The beach also got covered in flies and it got a weird smell to it. It went from a nice place to lay and relax at to a beach that you can’t really walk on anymore. It was not ever a super pretty beach to go to or anything but it was a nice place to have especially in the middle of midterms and finals.
