Room to roam

Just after publishing my previous post about Bruhel Point, I saw a Facebook post from the Mendocino County Tourism Commission with the tag line “Room to Roam,”  and I thought it was really appropriate for my final group of photos from our outing there last May. As I mentioned before, we had the whole area to ourselves when we discovered […]

Ocean vista

As I look over the time stamps of the photos I shot at Bruhel Point, it’s hard to believe we were there for only an hour! As soon as I got out of the car, I knew I was going to like this spot right away. I could see the ocean, and the trail that led down the hill was […]

I haven’t started sorting through them yet, but I’m really […]

Winging and singing

It’s a tough life as I try to make the most of my handful of days on the Mendocino coast. While I’m having a blast shooting the profusion of wildflowers and spotting new (to me) butterflies, I’m missing out on the chance to just sit and gaze at the ocean for hours at a time. Difficult choices, but I’ll try […]
