We took off last weekend with high hopes that we would be on Avila Beach at sunset. Unfortunately, the traffic was not accommodating in helping to make that happen.
The hills stood between us and Avila Beach. For those of you who don’t know, Avila Beach sits just below San Luis Obispo. It reminds me, a bit, of Santa Cruz when I was very young.
The next morning we walked from pier one to pier three and the colors in the water were amazing. I found that I was longing for Kodachrome. I just can’t do it justice digitally.
One thing I like about this place is how extraordinarily ordinary it is. This boat is a perfect example, it’s not a yacht. Some places are filled with expensive boats. I didn’t see that here.
It’s a calm place where people seem happy just to be out in the morning enjoying a cup of coffee with friends.
It is clear me that I need to spend more time in this place. I really like it here. I like the activity and I like it’s peacefulness.
We carried on down to Newport Beach. It’s got an ocean full of water but it doesn’t have the feel of Avila Beach. I found myself missing the place from hence I’d come.
Go out and have a lovely weekend away.
