Our second venture up to the Mendocino area was vastly more successful than the first. It turns out that a baby with an ear infection can make all the difference in the world! We just had a great time all around. This is such a beautiful area and the kids both slept and ate well and were happy. As Jeremy and I drove home we just kept saying, "That was awesome." We couldn't quite believe it had turned out so well. The train was a hit with all of us, and the next day's adventures were utterly lovely. After baths and breakfast, we checked out of the hotel and headed for Russian Gulch State Park. Gorgeous.

This is the type of place where every turn of my head introduced an awe-inspiring view. We couldn't stop taking pictures. They are going to do a lot of the talking on this post.

We walked under the bridge pictured above and admired it from this different perspective.
Egghead's restaurant where we knew there was something for everybody....and Wizard of Oz props for story telling at the table. This time I tried the grilled cinnamon bread and had eggs benedict again. I think I ate 2200 calories in that one sitting. Seriously. Jeremy had a crepe stuffed with all sorts of spicy and savory goodness.
