We decided to go back to one of our favorite places for the kid's Spring break this year. Yes we went back to Avila Beach yet again (map). But we found so much new stuff to do that it didn't seem like we were hanging around the same old place doing the same old stuff.

But what made this trip a little different was that we had our new dog Phoebe with us on the trip. And with her we spent a lot of time on the dog beach which was just below where we were camping. On the Saturday that we were there, we spent the whole day on the beach with Phoebe and all the other dogs and people who came down to walk their dogs.

We took a short bus ride to the lighthouse and enjoyed an excellent tour of the lighthouse from a very knowledgable lighthouse guide.

That is the kids did all of the dancing, while us parents talked and drank wine.
