Back from another Mendo getaway. As always– ate too much, didn’t exercise enough, didn’t take enough pictures, had lots of laughs… and can’t wait to go back.
I saw lots of trillium
blooming at Fern Canyon at Russian Gulch State Park
. If you go to Mendo, this paved bike ride/hike to a waterfall is a must. It’s spectacular… very Land of the Lost.
Camping, Angela style…
We had wi-fi at the house… for awhile. After losing access, I couldn’t even get a dial-up connection. Nooooooooooooooo! Thank God there’s an internet cafe in the village.
My mom made quiche. Take that, tent campers.
I love it when fog rolls through town. It’s thick and fast-moving. Every day was sunny, which made the fog an extra special treat.
Heed these words, unless you want to be the meat in a car sandwich.
Here’s a little something for dog-loving purse fanatics.
Catch the peace sign on the front railing? You’ll see a lot of peace signs in Mendo. My kind of town.
I stopped by Ingridd’s Potter’s Studio to take a few pics in her front garden. There’s always something interesting nestled in the flowers.
I love the rugged bluffs of Mendocino. Sandy beaches aren’t as accessible as in Southern California and the ocean waters can be rough on ships
, but that obviously has something to do with the fact that Mendo still offers much in the way of pristine wilderness.
Despite the abundance of natural beauty, you’ll still spot the occasional dorky tourist…
Dinner at the Moosse Cafe. I had the halibut with fingerling potatoes and veggies. Whoops, I also sampled the honey and lavender crème brulee for dessert. Delish.
