We were in Fort Bragg for the 4th of July weekend. Lots of things in bloom at the Botanical Gardens.
This is the coolest new sculpture at the Botanical Gardens.
Woodland scene at the Botanical Gardens.
The pitcher plants were in bloom!
And then you have the back alleys of Fort Bragg. I (Bonnie) love this sort of scene.
View towards Hwy 1.
The 4th of July weekend was sunny and warm in Fort Bragg. Lots of families out at Pudding Creek Beach.
A wind swept pine.
Guy on the boardwalk at MacKerricher State Park.
Guy looking at the seal on a log in the 10 Mile River estuary. The road is another section of the old Haul Road for transporting timber to Fort Bragg.
Guy's never gotten over his fascination with making little boats. That one made it all the way to the bridge!
Looking down onto Big River, which meets the ocean at the town of Mendocino. Very popular with boaters these days, but it was a major transport route for timber in the old days.
Finally we got some fog! This is looking from near the end of our driveway towards Hwy 1.
Our driveway. Actually, it's the driveway for five houses.
Dahlias are blooming.
At the Botanical Gardens again.
You all recognize that guy.
The weekend after the 4th we sort of stayed home, but not really. Sunday we did a moto ride to the coast via backroads. This is the Klamath River about 20 miles upstream from Willow Creek. That's a washed-out bridge in the water.
My selfie from the bridge over the Klamath. That's my moto, too.
