This was one thing I really wanted to do, and the weather held out for us to do so.
The Botanical Gardens are 47 acres of absolute paradise!
There are trails and paths everywhere, and I am sure we missed tons of stuff on our day trip.
The 47 acres of garden lead you to the ocean.
Once you reach the coast there is this
"Cliff House" with a spectacular view.
It is completely enclosed
I wished I had brought my picnic basket
so we could have eaten lunch in here.
Looking out the windows, just to the right, up on the hill, was a
beautiful weathered fence.
From there we ventured over to the Parrish Pioneer Cemetery.
and yes, I thought it was beautiful too...
Then.... the VEGETABLE garden.
It was my favorite spot!
In light of that statement, now I'll just post about a gazillion pictures to share...
(yes, I do realize that my shadow is in the picture, and I tried to crop it out,
but then it cropped off some of the words)
Just outside the Garden...
Entering the Garden...
My head was practically spinning... I have an iron headboard similar to this right in my garage at home!
This year I feel in love with Leeks
The out building leaving the Garden...
Oh my goodness... I could live there.
If ever you get a chance to vacation over on the Mendocino coast,
this is a must 'go to' place.
