I got this wine from Taylor's, it's excellent! I think it's like 12 bucks. It's some kind of red blend, I think. It's a vin de pays du gascogne, but I can't find any info on the internet about what grapes are in there.This was the Valentine's day dinner. Stuffed green peppers. A classic, just like grandma used to make. I just kinda made a meatloaf, with rice, and stuffed it in there. I used Bledsoe's grassfed beef. It's cheap and organic.
Mendocino was wonderful. The only really good place we eat was Mendo Burgery (it's "mendo burger" but i liked that I coined the term 'burgery" accidentally), which I highly recommend. Friendly hippy couple, cute dog to pet, she cuts the fries from the potato as you watch. The burger reminded me of a Whitey's burger. Here's some scenery. It's hard to take a bad picture there.
It's kinda hard to make it out, but this was a crazy swoopy house on a cliff in Scott's beloved town of Caspar.
See that weird yellow tinge to the ocean water? It was a toxic-looking foam. I'm sure it was natural.
Succulents! We stole a couple to plant at home.
This was a cool sign that was near the Devil's Stinkhole. The warning signs were a little outrageous. One actually said "how to survive this beach". I started to feel like I was going to get trapped between a rogue wave and a mountain lion.
This bridge is over the beach at Russian Gulch state park. If you toss a mendo burger wrapper in this area you will hit a new state park. It's lousy with them. There's also Van Damme park, which we did not go to.
I would recommend a hike up the river at the Mendo Headlands state park, and a trip to the Cabrillo Point lighthouse.
