Shaun has a fist full of Elite Cards from companies in the travel industry. Her job requires business travel, she gets to keep the points. We wanted a mini vacation. A Saturday/Sunday vacation. Thanks to Hertz points, we rented this…
…for the whopping sum of $1.18. (For those outside the US, that’s less than one Euro.)
It had less than 100 miles on the odometer. We set out to fix that, and drove to Mendocino.
If the pictures look vaguely familiar, Hollywood filmed the TV series “Murder, She Wrote” (starring Angela Landsbury) here. This is, uh, ‘Cabot Cove’, located in ‘New England’.
If you’re expecting gorgeous men and women in minimal spandex, on warm beaches leaning against surfboards, you’ve been brainwashed by Hollywood (Baywatch) into thinking the entire coastline looks like southern California. For the horsey, this is comparable to being unable to differentiate a donkey from a Clydesdale. They’re both good, but very different.
My thrill of the day: there was rattlesnake grass everywhere, one of my favorite wild things. You’ll recognize it when you see the photo!
