Esther was not feeling the whole family vacation vibe and wanted to spend some time alone.
Growing up in a big family had its blessings, but it was challenging for someone like Esther.
She tended to be an introvert and longed for time alone. So, last summer, she told everyone she was not going on the family vacation. Instead, she would fly to Santa Barbara and explore the city on her own. Her parents knew it was pointless to try and convince her not to do what she wanted to do. Therefore, they all made different arrangements. Her family was the first to leave since they were going out of the country. The following day, Esther flew to Santa Barbara and stayed in a lovely furnished apartment she’d rented for the stay. Esther had so many things she wanted to do in Santa Barbara on her solo visit, including checking out the weed dispensaries. She’d read weed was legal in California and wanted to enjoy a few items when she was there. Another thing was she wanted to explore the warm and sandy beaches. All her life, Esther had dreamt of living near the beach and learning to surf. This was her chance to try out and experience surfing. Santa Barbara beaches were the best for anyone looking for surfing lessons. Esther found a place on her third day with instructors who could train her for about an hour and a half a day. The water felt so good, and slowly she began to fall in love with the coastal city. Most of her days would end with her sitting at the beach to watch the sunset.
