Avila Beach, California

We take one step forward and two back as more delays set in to slow our progress towards getting the house on the market.  We are not discouraged as we see the end of our house anchor in Cambria in sight.  

But, first, as we left to spent the weekend in Avila Beach for a photo shoot, the RV nearly didn't make it out of the mud that soaked the ground with all the rains we had recently.  Dug a deep hole that we figured we'd address when we got back.
Avila Beach is what California is all about.

Just one other camper in our area.  
It rained off and on during the weekend.  Beautiful rainbow breaking through the clouds.
Pelicans everywhere!
After Avila Beach, we decided to spend the night in San Simeon State Park as we contemplated what to do about the large hole where the RV was to be parked by our house.  Bill and Jerry first laid some additional running boards to drive on.  Then, after many phone calls, Jerry finally got help filling in the hole with rock and other ground cover. 

Spreading rock over ground so we can park RV next to house.

The thought in my head is who needs to buy a National Geographic when I can look at your fabulous pictures. haha. I enjoy getting to travel "along" with you. Sorry to hear about the tree, crazy weather it has been. Oklahoma has received more snow this winter than Denver. Where is Al Gore when you need him?

Hi Amos -- thanks for following our blog and enjoying it, too. And, we've received more rain this year, too. Yes, it has been crazy weather.
