Looking at the mouth of the Noyo River just south of Ft. Bragg on my morning walk. State Route 1 crosses over above the river.
Businesses along the wharf have beautiful (and often humorous) signs.
“No phone, no TV, No WIFI. No problem. You are on vacation.”
I thought of you, Ariel.
Hiking up the hill to our motel I looked down at the wharf and harbor it was very peaceful.
After a bit of sunny weather in the Ft. Bragg area, going south to Sea Ranch we found it grey and foggy.
Nearly every day for the rest of our vacation was cool and grey. Here are some pictures from Sea Ranch where we were joined by first my mom and Molly, and then my sister Kathleen.
Abalone divers getting ready to go into the water.
Low Tide on Walk On Beach.
Gooseneck barnacles and mussels on the rocks.
Rem and I made a cake to continue his birthday celebration: Double Chocolate Layer Cake from Smitten Kitchen.
The cake pans were a little smaller than called for, so we made a few cupcakes too.
I decorated the cake with nasturtiums.
The sun came out on the day we were leaving. My mom, Kathleen, Molly and I walked at Gualala Point and down on the beach.
There was still a little finger of fog over Gualala.
It was time to pack up and get ready for our drive home after a wonderful vacation.
Thanks for your visit.
