Mendocino Coast

California has many beautiful coastal locations.  If you like beaches with lots of sun, southern California is your bet.  The farther north you go, the rockier and more “wild” the coast gets.  The area around Carmel/Monterey is world-famous for its spectacular beauty.  Keep coming north and you’ll eventually get to the Mendocino area which is also beautiful and famous.  Today’s picture was taken there on a recent visit while the fog was still hanging around.  This picture is from the headlands with the village of Mendocino directly off to the left.

It’s a place I love to visit.  I love the wildness of the headlands and the sounds of the surf, and the mournful sound of the buoys off the coast as they warn sea-going vessels that they are approaching shallow water.

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY: in 1891, the submarine Monarch laid telephone cable along the English Channel coast in preparation for the first telephone links across the channel.

TRIVIA FOR TODAY: increasing herbicide use has created a jungle of at least 48 “super-weeds” that are resistant to herbicides.
