This sweet gem is along the Navarro River not too far from the Mendocino coast - a remodeled water tower so cleverly re-purposed for hosting guests. The water is still above, but the interior is now pure white, pure bliss, and pure calm. My partner and I were charmed. I could have stayed in all day. There was a coolness to the air on that late spring weekend. There were delicious cubes of zucchini bread left by our delightful hosts Elsa and Robert. There was a celebratory anniversary bloom. There was angelic music. There was candlelight. There was a loft for a peaceful night or two. There was such creativity. There was uniqueness. There I was. There we were.
I find myself seeking the unusually serene in the world around me. I notice how I gravitate to quiet clean line spaces. I notice how I love the 'negative' space in a big wide expanse; a term often used back in my days at the San Francisco Art Institute in my various photography classes.
This unique space knocked on the door of my days when I was searching for a tucked away treasure on Airbnb. Lucky me. That coastline beckons.
I return to the area next week. In this wild world of ours there is no doubt a healing getaway is so good for the soul...
Happy escapades ~ Enjoy as always, Adeline
