Mendocino, CA

“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.
                                                             Jacques Cousteau

After an amazing visit with the redwoods, we made our way south to Mendocino.  The town is small but cute, with some wonderful restaurants and lovely Victorian architecture.  But the main attraction is the access to the ocean headlands that surround it.  There are beautiful hikes, and for the more sedentary, many accessible vista points from the road.

In addition to the gorgeous ocean views, there are wildflowers everywhere.  The combination of colors is fantastic.
