Mendocino, the Music Festival, the Beautiful Pacific Northwest

more stops along the way on our holiday 
to the West Coast of the US & Canada

the charm alone is enough to take one to Mendocino, 

North of San Francisco, almost to the Oregon border...
but when one adds the iconic Music Festival, 
which this year runs from  July11-25
it makes it downright impossible not to put this historic little town on your must-see list.
the weather is perfect.  & I do mean perfect. cool & sunny, the Pacific right in front of you,
rolling in the bluest waves imaginable.
the little town sits on a high bluff, and has tiny coffee & wine bars, little cafes & shops
sprinkled all around.

the photo I'm showing you below is of a large symphonic orchestra,
but the festival encompasses many genres of music.

you can find darling little B&B's and 2 very small upper tier hotels,
there is no Ritz-Carlton, no FourSeasons,
everything is very quaint, very old New England in feel,
& that's exactly what it should be for it's locale.

let me know if you decide to go, or have gone.
