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!
