January 4--Rainy day at the botanical garden

Breakfast at Alegria

We had a delicious breakfast this morning. The place we like to stay always serves fresh and tasty food for breakfast, and good coffee as well. We awoke to a break in the rain, so right after breakfast we got out do do some walking around.

Our first stop was the Mendocino Botanical Gardens. It is a favorite spot any time of the year. Even though not much of anything is in bloom, the grounds are lovely, and you can walk all the way out to the ocean bluffs, which we did, and watched the waves crash against the rocks.

We spent about an hour and a half wandering around and enjoying the break in the rain.

I love succulents. The woman who told me about this place would often post pictures of the succulents here.

After the botanical gardens, we headed over to glass beach, just in time to meet the next storm coming in. We got to spend a little time walking on the beach before it started raining too hard.

We headed down to the wharf for some delicious fish and chips at some dive place, then back to our room to listen to the rain come down.
