More Tour Guide: Cloverdale, CA

On self’s way home to Redwood City today (She’s participating in a reading in Oakland tonight to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of CLEAVE, the Bay Area Women Writers collective), she decided to stop and grab coffee in the small town of Cloverdale.

Cloverdale is where self picks up Route 128 to Mendocino, so she passes through every single time she goes to and from Mendocino.

Today, she decided to look around. Right on N. Cloverdale Blvd. was a line of wash (lol).

It turned out to be an art installation by Allegra Burke and Beth Hartmann. The name of the work is “Hung Up.” It’s right next to Plank Coffee.

Self doubts she would have decided to shoot the picture if she hadn’t specifically been looking for pictures that fit this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge: TOUR GUIDE.

Tour Guide: The Daily Post Photo Challenge, 7 February 2018

This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge asks us to show “what we love” about where we live. Self lives in Redwood City, California but is spending the next few months in Mendocino, as the 2018 Writer in Residence at the Mendocino Art Center.

Her unit faces a forge/woodsmithing shop, and a local high school. At the end of the day, she can walk to the street and always manage to catch a spectacular sunset.

Today, the sunset was so alluring that self got into her car and chased it down as far as the Mendocino Headlands. She kept her car headlights on while taking this shot.
