Mendocino County

Private beach of  the B&B we stayed in
Mendocino - The name itself sounds very magical, isn't it J . Mendocino county in California is such a beautiful and romantic place. Stunning Pacific coast Highway 1 runs pretty much all through the county. Gorgeous coastal villages, gigantic redwoods, wineries, scenic drives all sum up to Mendocino. 
We visited there in mid of June and the weather was perfect. We stayed in a cute, little Bed and Breakfast which has a private beach. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted by a glass of wine and cookies. What more can you ask !!! Most of these B&Bs do not have TVs or internet and area has no cell phone coverage. So, it's a true getaway from your everyday life J. The view from our room was spectacular and we could hear waves crashing on the beach. We didn't take much pictures as we were busy relaxing. 
Bottom line, if you are in Northern California, Mendocino is an easy access to a perfect soothing weekend for couples. When you get a chance do give it a try. It's a mild climatic region but check out the weather before you plan.

Scary looking stairway to beach, but it works fine :)
