We decided when we figured out we’d be going to Avila Beach that we wanted to take a whole bunch of cute, fun pictures on the beach there. However, the weather was just stacked against us when we were in California. It rained most of the time we were there, and the beach was soaked.
But the neat thing about it all was that we’d never been to Central Coast during the rainy season (just missed it when we lived there, visiting at the end of December and February). While I could have done with a single day of storms, and not the whole trip, it was still cool to see the way the different weather affected the scenery.
We noticed it first along the PCH. Normally, the drive south from San Francisco starts out foggy (all of San Francisco is foggy until the afternoon, really), but it gets clearer as you drive down. This time, we had no such luck. However, we did get to see a really different, but still beautiful scene.
