The End of a Perfect Day




These sunset shots along Avila Beach are just a sample of the beautiful weather we are experiencing. They are forecasting rain for tomorrow. Yesterday we went to Cambria, one of my favorite cities in California. It is a quaint little town on the coast and has galleries, gift shops, and restaurants on the main street. It has grown a great deal since our last visit there. Many new homes are on the hillside also. It is so pretty there. Our friends had never been there before and the two ladies with us are both artists and went nuts over one of the galleries we went to. There were some absolutely beautiful paintings in there. Our plan for today is to go to Solvang. A danish town in the foothills of Santa Ynez. It is also wine country there. I think only one of the other couples has ever been there. It also has lots of galleries and gift shops and danish bakeries are one of there specialties. We are all feeling really guilty for leaving our dogs so much of the time. If the rain starts tomorrow we will be staying with them more and maybe hitting a movie or a shopping center. I also need to do some laundry and that would be a good thing to do in the rain.

I love how the seagull and the pelican are just hanging out with one another.
