scenes from the weekend

Nolan and I decided fairly last minute (Thursday night!) to get away for the weekend, and booked two nights at a little cottage just south of Mendocino. The weather was cool and foggy the whole time, perfect for a cozy relaxing weekend. We explored Mendocino Saturday morning and had a delicious brunch at the MacCallum House Inn, hiked to the Point Cabrillo lighthouse, then loaded up on groceries and headed back to the cottage. We spent the rest of the weekend in pajamas or bathing suits– reading, lounging in the hot tub, and sitting by the fire. It was pure bliss! I didn’t want to come home, but must say that I’m feeling fully recharged and ready to tackle the week. Hope your weekend was swell!

    cozy + relaxing = my favorite descriptive words for a weekend. plus – that lighthouse is so picturesque. & so different-looking from all the lighthouses that i frequently see in maine.

    I love Mendocino! My husband and I went there for my birthday this year and it was one of the most beautiful and relaxing places we have ever visited.

    I’ve been trying to get my mister to do a b&b weekend in Rockport and I think these photos have sealed the deal! I need me some lighthouse, small town, quiet time relaxation just like this.
