Tonia was planning on joining us at Avalon so we made our way down the island to meet her. Avalon was just as I remembered, bustling tourist city with a harbor packed with mooring balls. I guess the going rate is high for moorings, but we wanted to see it. Flow State and Coda took moorings and we headed in to see the city.
85 degree weather made it perfect for walking the city. We picked up Tonia and had a great dinner on the beach (yes table and chairs in the sand). That was great. Then we took the dinghy back and got a good nights sleep.
Avalon reminds me a bit of a European port in the south of France or Italy. It has a very nice feel. The next day, everyone wanted to get massages and Richard knew a masseuse with a practice in Avalon, so I got my first massage! It was very relaxing and very nice. We walked the town again and had a nice lunch at an Italian place.
The day flew by.
Another 80 degree Southern California November Day. I could get used to this.
