I decided to head toward the bluffs from the main part of Mendocino. I found a small trail through the grasses and wildflowers so headed out. The house in the distant background was my starting place. The trail got smaller and smaller but I kept going. I was wearing pants that were white until I unknowingly splashed into a bog hidden under the grass, splashing black mud all the way to my posterior. Nothing to do but keep going. Later when I hooked up with my husband for a drink, he just laughed. I guess he is used to me!
