A few weeks ago I went camping with some friends up in MENDOCINO COUNTY. Beautiful place with a quaint little town. I was able to steal away while everybody napped on saturday to do some doodles. It was a great experience. Last year I also did a painting, but gave it to the hostess. I highly reccomend this area to just relax. If you do have money to burn or just want to get away somewhere there are a lot of bed and breakfast type places around there. If you do go, I highly recommend the chocolate shop in Mendocino Town, and not the one in Fort Brag. Oh and abalone diving is awesome out there.
