The view down the road walking in.
As I look on either side of the road bands of color range from greens to greys to golden brown.
At the lighthouse , small but powerful.
Amaryllis belladona has natualized in places here in Mendocino County.
View from the cliffs
The lighthouse keepers cottages have been restored and are available as vacation rentals.
A last look towards the sea as I head back to the parking area.
Though we love our cultivated gardens,there are design lessons that nature provides . The simplicity of these views can be soothing -nothing here that is hectic or over-stimulating. The constant background sound of the surf , the breezes rustling the grasses and the sounds of the sea birds all have a strong component of tranquility.
