Hubs and I took a quick trip to visit one of our new favorite spots on the coast for a few days during Spring Break. It was a much needed & very relaxing visit!

Usually we spend quite some time investing in where we should go, stay, & dine ahead of time but this trip to Avila was of the spontaneous sort. After gathering recommendations from many friends via Twitter we embarked on our journey. Mundy trips have somehow begun with the tradition of enjoying breakfast burritos on our way to our destination and after a quick stop at our neighborhood burrito spot (don pepe’s how we love thee) we were officially on vacation. Mundy vacations usually involve doing something new and so in true fashion we stopped at Charles Paddock Zoo and soon learned a wonderful way to spend 2 hours on $10 being highly entertained.

Once finished frollicking with the wildlife back on our route we returned. Our fabulous friends had introduced us to the best coffee house a few Mundy trips to the central coast ago and upon investigating we learned that this little piece of our coffee consuming heaven had branched out to also include a beach stay.

So stay we did! The accomodations were comfortable & affordable within view of the beach… the staff was charming… and last but not least the coffee & pastries were delicious!

We took out time meandering back to the central valley from our short but sweet stay. Tide pool & pier exploring is always a must!

If you are in the Avila area you must visit Joe Momma’s or stay for a treat! Not bad for being spontaneous. Not bad at all.

Have you developed any traditions for vacationing?
