From Sonoma County, we took a road trip out the Russian River Valley and then north up the California coast on U.S. 1 for a few nights in Mendocino. Where the Russian River meets the Pacific Ocean there is a great overlook pullout and here’s what we saw – seals basking on the beach below! The flowers along the banks were glorious!

Some flowers around the grounds…
Sampling another wine… and it was very good!
Just outside the dining room window were stumps – before mealtime they would scatter seed and the animals would come a-running, hopping and flying! It was so entertaining to watch them while eating. The breakfast was really delicious and the view to the ocean was nice too.
Next up, abalone diving and exploring the tidal pools in the cove down the road, then Glass Beach and Mendocino
