Mendocino anniversary

Irving and I celebrated our 1-year wedding anniversary with a weekend getaway to Mendocino, a beautiful seaside town about 3 hours north of San Francisco. On the way up we stopped at the Marin Cheese Factory for a little lakeside picnic lunch.

We stayed at MacCallum House Inn, a quaint bed & breakfast just a short walk from the coast. We ate all our meals there since breakfast was complimentary and the restaurant was fabulous. The ingredients they used were locally produced, organic, and house-made.

We explored the coast, picked the blackberries which were everywhere, biked, and walked around town. A perfect weekend. And we were able to bring Charlie along, since the inn is pet-friendly. She seemed to enjoy herself, but was deathly afraid of the waves, as you can tell by her sad little face in the last photo.

Happy anniversary to us!

Happy 1 year! We were thinking of taking a weekend in Mendocino, and I'm happy to now know that Memphis can come along! :) She, however, loves the waves and likes to eat sand.
