The quiet Front Street at Avila Beach -- The summer high season has passed but the locals are apparently not yet out of hibernation.
The pier(s) -- Reportedly, a favorite place for swimmers, who emulate Michale Phelps (with various degrees of success, no doubt) using the protected waters between the piers as their course.
Avila Grocery and Mercantile
A very quiet beach.
I stopped in at the Hula Hut on Front Street for a multicultural meal -- Asian salad followed by a dessert of milk chocolate fudge.
Then it was time to head "home" to Palm Springs. The sun was setting as we drove the 101 east from Santa Barbara.
A tranquil day!
