Avila Beach, California
Avila Beach is very near San Luis Obispo where our son lives. We visited there earlier this month to help him and his bride celebrate their first anniversary. They eloped a year ago, so this was the occasion for friends and family from all over the country to come together to wish them well.

LOVE this one, Nikki! Terrific blue tones that looks great as a backdrop for the golden twinkling lights and gorgeous reflections. I remember your son eloping last year - congratulations to them on their first anniversary - they picked a gorgeous place for a celebration! #10276278
