3 days in Mendocino & Fort Bragg

I fell in love with the Mendocino area the first time we set our foot there. With its spectacular coast line, elegant redwood forests, lovely vineyards and beautiful cabins, it is hard not to! When we decided to move back from California, I knew I had to visit this gem of a place once again. So, we set out on a 3-day trip to Mendocino and Fort Bragg post Christmas and had a lovely time.

When you are driving from San Francisco, you can either take the coastal Hwy 1 all the way to Mendocino or take 101 and then Hwy 128. Though it might seem like the coastal route would be more scenic, there are these amazing redwood forests on Hwy 128 that we did not want to miss. So, we decided to take Hwy 128 on our way up and Hwy 1 on our way back and it worked out great. 
Our first stop was at the Mendocino Headlands SP, but it was so windy that evening that I could barely stand straight :) Soon we headed to the Point Cabrillo light house to watch the sunset. What a lovely and pleasant sunset it was! …
