Last fall was our first trip to Mendocino. We went on a recommendation from our good friends, so Ryan and I both knew we would love it......and we did!  The 4 hour long drive is well worth it.

Here are a few shots from the car.
 There are a couple vineyards along the way.

 The redwoods are always so pretty.

As Ryan's vacation week started getting closer I was thinking maybe we should go somewhere else like the Central Coast instead of the Northern Coast but in the end we chose Mendocino. There is just something about it that is so relaxing, laid back, and peaceful.....maybe that's because we left the boys at home with Grandma. We didn't have any screaming yelling children around and we got to sit down and eat a few nice relaxing meals. We love it there and can't wait to go back {hopefully next year}.

 Instead of trying to take a picture with the timer we had some random people take our picture who told us they had just come from Dick's....the only bar in Mendocino;)

 The sun did not shine until later in the afternoon:( So all the time we spent at the headlands was sunless.

 A shot from the headlands looking at the town.

Some cute little starfish.

 Ryan trying to freak me out. You can't tell but he was waaaayyyy down there.

Oh look....there he is again.

He was like really......another picture?!

 Don't you just love little towns like this?! So cute and charming.

 These little mushrooms are the one and only thing I wanted to get while we where there and I totally forgot. We were going to go back so we wouldn't have to carry them around town with us. I bought some last year and just love them. They are so cute. They are hand blown and they come in a variety of sizes from small to jumbo (these are the small ones) anyway totally bummed I didn't get to add any to my collection.

The first day we just walked around town and checked out the headlands then had an awesome dinner. {One thing I wish I would have done was take food pictures, the pork chops we had for dinner that night were off the hook yummy but so was everything else we had to eat...hehehe}.
I have lots more to share. So stay tuned and come back for more!
