Back to Gualala
Another day in Mendocino county. The fog had lifted and so far the murdering Buckners were a no show. Praise the Lord.
After a lazy morning, Bob suggested we go back to Gualala and seek some "culture." But first we decided to check out the nearby Point Arena Garcia River Casino. You've heard of casino culture, right?
We left there wallets intact.
Though Gualala is known for its bevy of artists, I had no idea this small town also had such an impressive art center. The exterior is dotted with pieces of sculpture...
Inside a stunning exhibit of Native American portraits was proudly on display.
We did the 'new age' thing and found stillness in the meditation center on the property.
By the time we finished exploring the Art Center, we were in the mood for a "tasting," and, as we drove here and there and up and up a mountain, we discovered the Annapolis Winery.
We headed back to our cabins in the woods as the sun set on another day of our excellent adventure. Because we were once again high up on the coast highway, I kept my eyes closed the whole time and wondered what Bob and Richard were going to make for dinner.
