Avila Beach

Here is the first in a series of posts from Avila Beach, not far from San Luis Obispo in California. We were there earlier this year when we helped our daughter move.
I thought it was very beautiful, so different from my part of the country.
And it's always a treat to be near breaking waves.
To see lots more beautiful scenes visit Scenic Sunday.

  4. About your comment on my curent post: I also love reading! Like you, I usually have more than a book going on. Sounds very interesting these books you are reading. I don't have a Kindle or Nook yet... Looks great to have one!

  5. Oh yeah, such a sacrifice to visit someone you love in such a terrible place ;>)))..... Oh my gosh, it's really a lovely lovely beach -- and, as you say, a nice contrast to Colorado. (And I love the scenic contrasts among the different parts of our country!)

  12. I moved to NZ and, thus, always near the sea a few years ago and I am still intrigued by the ocean. My shots are of the water, too!

  13. We spent 2 weeks in Pismo Beach in April and so enjoyed a full day hiking the Bob Jones Trail to Avila Beach. Love that Central Coast area.

  14. Love that coastline, its been far too long since our last visit. I could do with a long meandering walk in those californian waters right about now.
