Just as I enter Fort Bragg, there's a beautiful grove of Eucalyptus trees.
During the past month of my mostly coastal travels, from Alaska down to Fort Bragg, it's been foggy, sometimes smoky, but mostly misty, cool and foggy for the entire day. It's rare to see the sun let alone feel the warmth of the sun. Plus the glacial-blue ocean this far north packs a raging, mean, nasty punch when it slams against the jagged rocky shoreline.
I can understand why folks who live here are affected by SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder); feeling depressed by not enough sunlight. But there's a local remedy! Good friend David had suggested visiting the Mendocino County Botanical Gardens which has 47 acres of "botanical bliss fronting the Pacific Ocean". Entre ici mon ami . . . .
The bliss begins here . . . (click here for accompanying Bach music).
Sit a spell if you tire.
Or sit here if you prefer and ponder the role of nectar.
These flowers can speak for themselves.
That's all folks :)
