Point San Luis Lighthouse near Avila Beach, California. This restored lighthouse can be reached either by trolley or guided hike. My husband and I chose the guided hike, along the Pecho Coast Trail, where the ocean was on our side for most of this 4-mile, round trip excursion. The water was a mixture of blue and green and was simply stunning, as it sparkled in the late morning sun. We were blessed to watch two dolphins playing in this water just below the first cliff we climbed. What an amazing way to spend our morning!
