Days are casual in Mendocino
Wake up early. Mornings are cool, crisp and beautiful. Often times you'll be awakened by neighboring roosters. Watch the sun rise over the trees and Big River as it meets the ocean. Take a short walk to the bakery for some rolls and morning coffee. Stroll to the headlands and watch the morning dew disappear from the ground and watch the waves crashing into the rocks.
By now, the shops and stores are open. Spend hours walking through the streets, back ways and secrete paths to little shops and art galleries hidden from the street.
Have lunch at one of several local eateries. A little more browsing and then maybe an afternoon nap....zzzzzzzzzzz
Afternoon and its time to check out some of the other galleries you missed earlier. Make those reservations for dinner then relax. Have a glass of wine and stroll through the gardens or one of 2 graveyards in town. The evening ritual of sunset makes for delightful skies and beautiful colors.
Time for dinner at one of several fine dining restaurants in the area. Most offer very unique menus with great service and many with spectacular views.
After dinner, evening cocktails, or a night out on the town, it's time to relax. Snuggle up in our very comfortable beds as our pond frogs happily serenade you to sleep.
Relaxation, comfort, good food, beautiful views and warm hospitality make for a pleasant holiday in Mendocino.
