Just a quick tour of Mendocino.
After lunch we did our regular
walk around town, but I forgot
to take some photos so we drove
back around town so I could
get these! The fog was just off
the coast, but we braved the
chill in the air and sat outside
on the deck at the Bay View Cafe
for lunch. Fish & chips for Mike
and Fried shrimp for me. :o)
It was finally opened after
being closed nearly 8 months
after a water pipe burst.
In my opinion, the only restaurant
in the village with a great view of
the ocean when it isn't foggy!
Bay View Cafe to the left
of the Water Tower.
After lunch it was on to
Papa Bear's Chocolate House
for their delicious dark chocolate
covered peanuts! YUM !
Below is one of my many dream
properties. It comes with both
the front building and back house,
with a lovely garden, right on Main St.
....all for only $1.7 million! The view
from the front upstairs windows is
perfect though. :o)
These are taken from the Headlands....
showing the fog hugging the coast.
On some hill of despair,
the bonfire you kindle
can light the great sky ---
though it's true, of course,
to make it burn you
have to throw yourself in.
