mendocino in october

in early october we took a road trip up to mendocino, a small town that sits perched on the pacific coast, for our anniversary. a few hours north of san francisco, it's yet another wonderful destination within california state borders. with a stroke of luck and internet researching skills on my side, i found glendeven inn for our lodging. i have always wanted to try a bed & breakfast, and after this experience, will definitely book another trip in the future. we most enjoyed the warm staff, friendly fellow guests and all the relaxation we could soak up.

if you're planning on being up in the area, here are a few recommendations:
  • eats at mendocino cafe, the moosse cafe and deli goods from the market for lunch.
  • stay at glendeven inn. mike and john make sure your stay is pleasant and you get to feed the llamas and chickens on sight. the grounds are free reign to enjoy the greenhouse or a leisurely walk to the beach.
  • our soundtrack. these are enjoyable tracks that kept the trip memorable and sweet: the dan in real life soundtrack, marie antoinette soundtrack (especially avril 14th), radiohead's in rainbows and miles davis anything (always a winner).
here are a few pictures from the trip. enjoy!
