This was a "boys trip." I went up to Mendocino with my friends Sam and John. We all worked together in the 80's and 90's and have remained great friends over the years. From time to time we get together to catch up and bond.
1 I took this photo at 2 a.m. There was a full moon with full cloud cover and the fog was rolling in.
2 As you can see the ocean was fairly active this morning.
3 Huge waves.
4 My best friend and mentor Sam. Much of what I have been able to accomplish in life is due to this wonderful man.
5 John, a friend so close we are like brothers.
6 John on his way down to the cove to take some photos.
7 Photos taken and not a drop spilt of the bourbon. A true professional.
8 Sam and John.
9 There is a really nice restaurant right outside of Mendocino that we decided to go to once we got sick and tired of our cooking.
10 The sun setting. Photo taken from outside the restaurant.
11 This is the hotel where "Same Time Next Year" with Alan Alda and Ellen Burnstein was filmed.
12 The northern California coatline.
13 A nearly full moon. Photo taken from the cottage.
14 This little character takes care of the cottage.
15 Surfs up.
16 A rare site, a DC 3 heading south.
17 If you look closely you will see a hawk in the middle of the photo out looking for his dinner.
18 Near the Navarro Vinyards.
19 Redwood trees. This is a beautiful 45 minute drive from the vinyards to the cottage.
