Point Reyes National Seashore has long been a draw for us. This beautiful and protected piece of coastline offers pristine hikes, expansive beaches, and up-close wildlife. Our recent trip introduced us to Abbotts Lagoon, an easy 2-mile walk to the ocean – see for yourself the beauty this amazing spot has to offer.
Well, in addition to the park there are actually a couple of other things that pull us to the region. The funky and hip towns of Olema and Pt. Reyes along with the downright delicious fragrance of BBQ oysters wafting on the breezes.
About 17 miles south of Southport is Crosby Beach. Here you’ll find the striking public artwork ANOTHER PLACE, by world-famous British artist Antony Gormley. Our friends suggested to visit what they referred to as The Men On The Beach… 100 statues spread out over 2 miles of beautiful beach.
Working with the Mendocino College Foundation is always fun and rewarding…every time we create a video for them we are left with the sense of having done some good for the young people in our county. The mission of the Mendocino College Foundation is to cultivate, support and raise funds for the benefit of the students of Mendocino College and they work at this every day.
This video covers a small part of their 2017 Scholarship Awards Ceremony and we were thrilled to be a part of capturing this moment.
Our friend Chris Zaida has expanded her business Toto Zaida and moved to a new location at 401 North Main in the Northeast corner of the depot mall across from Understuff. Spacious, Elegant and a touch of Fun. Come and check it out!!!
November 27 2015 we filmed a live performance at the Caspar Inn in Caspar CA.
“Lafe Crick” Our local Mendocino Coast Bluegrass ensemble. What a show, Lafe Crick is Ryan Kroll on mandolin, guitar and vocals; Joey Goforth on banjo and vocals; Lee Rider on dobro and guitar; and Peter Temple on bass. Their music is limited only for dancers, cloggers, toe tappers, boot scooters and just plain old good music fans. They do a mix
of traditional and progressive bluegrass, some jazz, blues, rock, swing
and original tunes.
A beautiful Saturday afternoon fundraiser at the Mendocino Art Center, The ‘Chocolate, Wine and Ale Festival’ featuring top Chocolatiers, Wine Makers, and fine Ales. Two local restaurants made an outstanding showing with their chocolate deserts and mussels cooked in dark ale… Oh my! Among the crowd the MAC’s community partner events were making themselves known Winesong charity event and the Music Festival were both there to give us the heads up on purchasing tickets and volunteering… my wife and I are signing up for both… Filming local events is quite rewarding, I always seem to run into the nicest people.
Wow! Driving home from our Friday night date night with my lovely wife we we’re crossing the Noyo River bridge and looked out towards the ocean and what a sight. I had to capture and share. If you’ve never been to the lovely town of Fort Bragg California it is a trip well worth taking and for many reasons, this is just one of them. We sure love living in Mendocino…
