Anniversary weekend pictures, part 2

Mendocino is really beautiful. There are scenes like this everywhere you look:

I got some new shoes:

We went for a run along Big River.

Tim running:

Me running:

Taking a break after 3 miles:

Cooling off fast after the run:

So beautiful:

Random weekend thoughts:
Mendocino, land of the Prius, is the only place where one can feel guilty for driving a Camry Hybrid, as it doesn't get as good of gas mileage as it could if it were a Prius!
Breakfasts at the inn were fabulous, and I loved that there was no bacon or sausage!
At a dog-friendly place, there are always happy dogs to be petted.
North coast CA is really laid back. Maybe it's all the pot in the air...:)
Hot stone massage is relaxing, but I won't do it again, as I love therapeutic massage and ALWAYS have issues to be attended to.
There are a million yummy restaurants to choose from. We ate at Cafe Beaujolais twice because it was that good!
Having a wood-burning fireplace in your room is fun and romantic.

I think I've regained my equilibrium after the weekend and it feels good to be back!

I'll have to keep Mendocino in mind. It looks gorgeous and rather peaceful there!

Happy Anniversary!

Colette said...

That will have to be my next romantic getaway for sure!! The pictures are so beautiful, and I'm sure they didn't do it justice ;)

Love those funky/fun shoes too!

Looks like it was perfect, even if you don't drive a Prius. I'll have to check out Bistro 33 next time we're visiting there.

That sounds incredible. I would love to drive up the coast with my sweetie and enjoy some of that northern beauty.

Colette -- The shoes feel better than barefoot, even though they have a little bit of a Birkenstock vibe -- sigh.

Anne -- You will LOVE Bistro 33!
