In winter in Santa Barbara, when the wind begins to whip the sea up and whisk saltspray against your face, the boats are tossed ashore.
And there's no better place to see these majestic shipwrecks than at Butterfly Beach. In fact, it's become a bit of a tradition in our family. Whenever winter draws near, our family makes sure to drive by Butterfly Beach, seeking these such shipwrecks. In the few cases that we do, we hurry down to the beach and walk along the shore, cameras swinging around our necks, laughing and talking and watching the waves swish up against shore and sprinkle across our faces.
When we arrive at the shipwreck, the cameras unravel from around our necks and poise, facing the boats. The clicking of our cameras as we snap pictures are barely heard over the monotone of the waves, the wind, the shouting of the children gleefully at play.
And when the sun begins to dip beneath the sea, we watch the sunset before heading home.
A little bit about this...
All trips have their share of funny stories. We decided it would be fun to recall these laugh-out-loud moments right here, on this page.
