Bloviating Zeppelin: The Mendocino Coast

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

The Mendocino Coast

My wife and I decided to stay a little longer on the Fornicalia coast, in the small northern town of Mendocino, in Mendocino County.  We can hear the constant ocean waves crashing right outside our door every hour of every day.

Whilst in Mendocino, I came across an absolutely pristine 1961 MG-A 1600 MKII convertible, as you can see above.  This car was so immaculate as to suggest that it surpassed its having been issued from the original factory (as an aside, click on every individual photo for its larger parent version).

I pedaled along a number of local bike paths, took more photos (on my wife's camera, not mine -- which I had forgotten), drank beer, ate seafood, signed us both up for a 110-minute deep tissue massage, visited KOZT, The Coast (95.3) for a bumper sticker, hit La Costena, Harvest Market, the Mendocino Cliffs, and watched seven nights of sunrises and sunsets.

I have one more night.  As you might guess, I'm not "doing" much politics right now.

I can only hope you enjoy the photographs.

God bless.

Enjoy the rest of your trip my friend. I'll try not to be too offended by the absence of my invite. :)

Looks awesome!! I love seeing Capitalism at work.. you work your hind endy off and get to go on vacations like this! ;0)

Glad you aren't doing politics today.. You wouldn't want to with what is going on with N.Korea knowing WHO is in charge in our Govt. now.. It is a pretty scary time today.. Hopefully N.Korea is just blabbering, but I tend to think since we have 'the weak' in charge he is going to actually do something this time.

Wonderful pics, BZ. I downloaded two of them for wallpapers, specifically the duck and the cactus flower. Thanks! I'm glad you're having a good time and I envy your break from politics. :)

CL: hey, thanks for visiting, my friend! Sorry, I forgot, but the invite stands for next time!

TCS: I had a 1974 MG and it held the phrase "Prince of Darkness" in good stead with regard to its lighting and electronics.

Gary: visiting Mendocino and Ft. Bragg!

Rivka: thanks! But i could tell, not as much traffic as previous years.

Gayle: hey, download away, please!

This is breathtaking country. There's no place in the world - no rivieras or coastlines that match that of California.

BTW, the first time I visited you, I think you were on some coast, listening to the crashing waves and talking about the Mac you had just bought for your wife:-)

Enjoy BZ.

That coast is a tribute to the Ultimate Artist.

Any surfers?

Ranando: nah, not because there aren't waves but because the waves terminate into big-ass rocks and cliffs. Great ride, painful ending.

But I can see by your post today and that comment you left at my place that relaxation SURE didn't last long!

LOVE that car...pristine.

The scenery in that part of our nation is breathtaking.
