At this time last weekend, we were camping in Mendocino at a spot called Russian Gulch. Together with Alex's cousin and aunt we explored a small part of northern Cali's majestic seacoast. This particular area is made uniquely beautiful by the Frederick W. Panhorst bridge, which frames the shoreline creating a dramatic introduction to a secluded beach. Once there, our twin boys and Loki (our free spirited dog) ran amok, while Zoe's sole intent was to build a mini rock and seaweed village. We did some kayaking around the rocky ledges among the giant seaweed and were rewarded with the most amazing views. Moments such as these, i.e.: away from home routines, disconnected from work and technology, are both craved and treasured by us as a family. Here's to another weekend of exploration and escape. Hope you all have a great one, too!
Soon I'll share one of the amazing meals we prepared over the campfire at Russian Gulch. Seriously, if you want to eat well while roughing it, camp out with us.
Many thanks to VK for sharing one of her most favorite camping spots with this wild bunch!
