Over this week my friend Sofia and I decided to go and check out the tide pools at butterfly beach in Montecito since they are only around a few months out of the year. The day was super cloudy, cold, and damp but we decided to go anyways. We packed up our stuff and headed over to the beach. Our goal was to find fun little creatures and cool photo worthy shells, so we were excited to see that the beach was covered in mossy rocks and little tide pools. We slipped and fell about a hundred times on the moss covered rocks and by the end of it our shoes were soaked with water and covered in moss, but by the time we got to the end of the tide pool all the falling was totally worth the amazing view. Sofia and I weren’t really expecting much from this little adventure just going down to the beach which we take so much for granted, but we actually had a really fun time! We laughed at each other as we slipped on the rocks also as we danced on the rocks and listened to music and as we thought we found something cool but actually just finding some seaweed or a piece of trash. After about an hour of exploring the little pools and having absolutely no luck even finding the smallest of creatures and only about two photo worthy shells we gave up and drove over to chick-ful-a. We jammed out to some fun and up beat songs and feasted on chick sandwiches without pickles (of course) and some lemonade. All the calories where totally worth it after all of the hard tide pooling and exploring we had done earlier in the day. Overall this day was unexpectedly really fun, even though we didn’t find what we had come there to find. I would for sure do this again and I would recommend it to someone who is looking for something do by themselves or even with some friends!
