Glamping on the Mendocino Coast

This week we escaped north to the rustic seaside Howard Creek Ranch Inn and B&B for some glamping, piled-high country breakfast, and super strong cowboy coffee. Perched up on the hillside in Westport, we stayed in the dog-friendly Seaview cabin complete with a outdoor kitchen, charcoal grill, enclosed outdoor shower, and massive quilts.

Scenes of the City: Abandoned Anchor Glass Company

For this week's Scenes of the City, we visited a spooky old glass factory in the delta town of Antioch. Anchor Glass Factory (1400 W 4th Street) was demolished recently, but for some time it was a photographer's and explorer's haven. Like most abandoned industrial sites, it almost seems like everyone clocked out one Friday and just never came back, leaving behind magazines, boots, and tools.
