Mendocino Coast

We recently visited relatives who live right on the Mendocino coast in northern California.  It is such an inspiring place to reminisce, curl up with a book of poetry, or explore the craggy coves.  Here are some images from our trip.
This is the bluff cottage; the main house is in the background.

This is the Pacific Ocean view from one of the bluff cottage windows.

The Alexander Valley is a great grape growing region of Sonoma County. The Cabernet grapes are ripening beautifully in the summer heat.
