West Beach – A Sunset or Sunrise
It probably doesn’t get much more romantic than being on the beach watching the sunset. If you were going to West Beach, just a short walk from The Eagle Inn, you will be thrilled with the oranges, reds, and yellows against a background of fading blue. Plus, since the beach faces southeast, it’s also possible to view the sunrise bringing in a new day that you will share with each other. As you huddle on the beach, the scent of fresh ocean mist coming off the incoming waves is invigorating. It’s a great way to start the day.
If you prefer an indoor setting or want to have wine with your companion, Stearns Wharf is the right choice for a sunset. Several restaurants will cater to your desires. You’ll have the same view, but with amenities to share.
Going whale watching together is an exciting adventure that you will enjoy. But if you don’t want to be with other people on your getaway, you can spot whales at Shoreline Park at the bronze whale statue. Alice Keck Park Memorial Gardens will put you in place to see turtles sunning, Koi swimming in ponds, and beautiful flowers. During the fall and winter months, check out the Ellwood area north of Goleta. Can you picture 100,000 monarch butterflies? They are a symbol of hope, joy, and new beginnings. The experience will have a positive effect on you.
