Northern CA Trip: Day 1

So Mike and I took advance of our long weekend and headed up to the Mendocino area. Mike loves his curvy, country roads, and 128 was no exception. We passed by many beautiful wineries, and Standish Winery looks straight out of a fairytale.

The fresh air of all the gorgeous trees was so refreshing. We didn't really have a plan of what to do or where to stop, so we just went about our way and pulled off where we wanted. We ended up stopping to see the Cabrillo Lighthouse.

There were several different paths leading away from the parking lot and towards the shore, but we just happened to take the long extended version. I was not prepared, as I figured 1/2 mile, no need for water, or anything else, let's just walk and come back. Man was I wrong. I was so glad when we finally saw the lighthouse.

We even went to a few garage sales and picked up a few cookbooks and what not. A dinner, some great conversation, and a beautiful sunset, and that was the end to our first fabulous day.
