    Avalon is a quaint town that is full of beauty and wonder. Within five minutes you find yourself at the top of a mountain, with ocean views all around you. Walk down front street and you will see coffee shops overlooking the beautiful beaches. It truly is a slice of paradise that many people come to visit for vacation, but a few lucky people such as myself get the opportunity to live here. It has the feel of a small town, with one post office, one bank, and one main grocery store, so you can not go anywhere without running into your neighbor, pastor, or best friend.

    Its a beautiful place to escape from reality. It has many activities, and you can get a free boat ride over on your birthday.
