We were able to make it down to Avila Beach again last weekend. This time, with "Missing Piece." We were fortunate to get a break from the recent rains, so we had plenty to sunshine to play in. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful it was down there.
We stayed at the Avila la Fonda and again, I was very impressed with the hotel. I feel so at home there and it's in a great location. It's a short walk to the beach and is surrounded by restaurants and cute little shops.
We spent the whole Saturday at the beach. Michael and Matthew had a great time playing in the sand and the waves. They met a new friend and played under the pier, looking for sand crabs and sea snails. They found a starfish hanging on to dear life on the pier pillar. It was very cool to see a starfish outside of an aquarium in it's natural habitat.
We also found lots of seashells and we even found 2 huge live clams that we brought home for dinner. It was NOT delicious.
