Day two in Mendocino. Lazy coffee (and toast, see previous post), drive to Fort Bragg with the music loud and the sunroof open. Glass beach, which is a not-so-secret dump/beach place with sea glass in place of sand. Yes, covered in sea glass. The old glass beach is glassless, so we had to climb over a few rocks to get to the new glass beach just south (and endure Steve’s mocking of me for insisting to wear Merrill clogs rather than white running shoes, which really didn’t look good with my outfit, y’ know). Loved the glass, really did, but found myself more interested in the crockery and the random assorted stuff that has washed up to shore. Glass beach to a walk for lunch on a bluff, a drive up farther north to McKerricher (gosh, were we really just 19 and 21 when we came here?), then back for a walk at Jug Handle State Park. No one was there! Sunny bluffs, incredible waves, and just us. We wandered back to town and through a few shops, but it was so beautiful outside that we couldn’t stay in. I did buy a scarf at the hippie store that was playing Grateful Dead, and held off on the Yellow Submarine jigsaw puzzle. There was a deck calling our name, and books, and perhaps another glass of wine, another Happy Hour and a hot tub in the forest. And we still have one more day to go!
It’s all personalI'm Kim and I have a few blogs (and perhaps an issue with over sharing, and too much time on my hands). My other two projects are www.fiftyfiftyvision.com and www.thisisplanbe.com. I also tweet at https://twitter.com/TheKimTackett and instagram at http://instagram.com/kimtackett. But here, it's all personal. I show up once a week, sometimes less, never more. I don't have a niche or a purpose or a plan. Just a few stories and pictures. Welcome to my personal space.
