We spent a relaxing day exploring Mendocino, the town, beach and headland.
The Ford Museum had a small, but informative, exhibit about the Pomo People, but it was dominated by the stories and images of the Redwood lumber boom of the mid 1800’s. We discovered that scenes from East of Eden were filmed here and we found photos of James Dean in Mendocino, in a book.
The mist almost dispersed before rolling in again, keeping the temperature low. We are not missing the inland heat, but are still waiting for beach-enticing temperatures on the coast!

Just caught after a few days, your experience on Monday sounded horrible, some people just don’t know how to behave and become intolerant of anyone in their way! The hill you described sounded awesome, makes a drive up Porlock Hill at the weekend seem totally insignificant!
You are doing well, keep it up. x
You will be interested to know that tomorrow we will be joining Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, purportedly close to where he landed in 1579.
