Pit Stop: Avila Valley Barn, Nr Avila Beach, CA
Fun place to stop, not far from the 101. Set among corn fields they have a wonderful selection of fresh produce, pickles, cheeses and other tasty things. They have a deli that serves sandwiches, and you can sit out on their deck in the warm sunshine. Top that off with a selection of home made ice creams and fudge for desserts and it's makes for a perfect pit stop. Added to that there is a broad selection of farm animals to pet and feed. Goats, llamas, sheep, horses, emus, chickens and yes a couple of humble old donkeys. Who wouldn't want the chance to pet a donkey.
