... just got the feeling that the young ones were out there in the surf having a ball and the older ones were the ones lounging about on the rocks.
It looked fabulous.
Mendocino was the pitstop we chose for a late lunch. It is not a large town and has a distinct style. It has been used over the years for many films and TV programmes...

... trip a day early, and Daniel managed to get our money back. Things looked up from there though with a lovely couple that gave us their daughter's contact details in Vancouver and the rain stopped.
This turned out to be one of the best days ever as we explored Fort Bragg, just up the coast from Mendocino. We met a lovely stoned old man running the sea glass museum and checked out the amazing glass beach. We decided it was a beach from outer space, with random bits of ...
