We prefer the Anderson Valley, between Cloverdale & the coast. The Town of Mendocino is a bit touristy, but interesting. There is some beautiful coastline between Bodega Bay and Fort Bragg, along Hwy #1

If you want to day sail, you should have no problem renting a boat, especially with your experience. We mostly sailed the North Bay, from the Gate to Alcatraz, north past Angel Island up into San Pablo Bay a ways and then back through Raccoon Straits. Generally there is not a lot of wind that time of year unless a storm is working up, but nice, easy sailing none the less. We used to sail out the gate a lot but the tides can be a factor when trying to get back in.

Bring lots of money & have fun.

I forgot this shameless plug. If you go to Mendocino stop in here:

Mendocino Art Center, Art Center, Art Classes, Art Instruction, Art Galleries

They are one of the 6 Northern California Fine Art Galleries showing our work. Ask for Megan Smithyman, the Gallery Director. Tell her "Paul" sent you and she will offer you a 50% discount on our work.

Paul and Nancy's Creations Home

My apologies, but our economy is still in the tank, struggling to pay the wood bills.

Forgot another gallery we show in, right in the middle of the Napa Valley wine country:
