View from the Headlands

Actually this is a rest bench in the Botanical Gardens which we visited just north of Mendocino. Quite a wind created a very agitated sea and a very exciting view. Flowers are in bloom everywhere.


Google deals brought us to Hill House, high above bluffs looking out over the Pacific. While the tiny town reminds me of Wellfleet every vista is so new and amazing as to be not believable. They came here to cut the redwoods down to build San Francisco after the gold rush. They have made most of the town into the Mendocino Headlands State Park.
