North border of Mendocino County

back to my home page. To see a map of this area.

The sky cleared above me as I approached Shelter Cove and I chased a fog bank up the coast into the harbor.

There is a private campground in Dead Mans Gulch, accessble from the Shelter Cove Beach.
The concrete boat ram that comes down the clif into the ocean at Shelter Cove.
The breakwater that shelters the cove even more than nature intended.
On the way back south after lunch, I traveled far from shore and went past the buoy on my way back to camp.

A pod of white sided dolphins rose up around me at one point!
