After a tasty vegan breakfast at Raven’s Restaurant at the Stanford Inn in Mendocino, we stopped off at Russian Gulch State Park for a short hike to more fantastic coastal scenery.
Then it was on to the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens, a dog friendly place full of trails lined with beautiful trees and flowers. And rustic gates.
Rhododendruns of every color were in bloom, but I can’t remember the names of most of the other flowers so I won’t even try. And it really doesn’t matter. They are just nice to look at.
One of the trails goes out to the ocean, and along the way we stopped at the Cliff House, a building that offers protection from the ocean breezes along with quite a view.
It was another good day in Fort Bragg.
