Memories of Ft. Bragg



This week I have been somewhat nostalgic for my northern roots in the Pacific Northwest.  When we visited Mendocino County in Northern California this past summer, we stayed for a day in Ft. Bragg.  There is a botanical garden there (appropriately named Garden By the Sea), so of course we had to spend a couple of hours there.  Today I remembered that I had taken photos in the garden and they reminded me so much of my verdant roots.  So I went back to the pictures in my files for a visit.




Who wouldn't want to live here, even if it's often foggy?

What a delightful place! I was in the area several years ago, a road trip with two other friends though we did not know about this garden :-(

When I drove through Fort Bragg I did not stop to see the garden, but I absolutely enjoyed seeing your photos of it. I am definitely one who would enjoy living by the sea again. xx

We have yet had a chance to visit the Pacific NW. It is definitely on our bucket list. We'd love to do a drive along the coast from San Francisco all the way to the top of Washington state and see all the sights along the way.

Colorado is beautiful, but definitely not a verdant state, and we miss that sometimes. The east coast had so many trees and lush gardens in summer.
