Mendocino Village and Point Cabrillo Light Station.

This iconic building greets travelers from every direction in Mendocino Village.
We enjoyed a delicious lunch from a favorite cafe and window shopped through the quaintly flowered streets.
Aunt Deeds and her lovies.
Jenny and her Hank-opotamus.

We walked out to the local light station and to our delight the buildings have undergone a recent re-gentrification and now once again look like they did in 1906. There is a geological anomaly here at Point Cabrillo just off the bluff behind the lighthouse. The curator of the museum told us the rock table we could see at low tide is a "barnacle exfoliate" for whales as they travel south from Alaska (October-ish) and then again north from Mexico (March-ish).

Little Girls playing on the porch of the Light Keeper's House (it is available as a vacation rental, fun! photo here.) and in the misty meadow.
