Looking forward to our breakfast at the Raven, well you do especially when it is free!
Think we over ordered!
This is a half order!!
On top of that we ordered French Toast!!
Now just relaxing in front of a nice big open fire
Afterwards we walked through the vegetable gardens of the restaurant, a fair amount of the food on the menu is grown here.
We both seem to be getting cold’s, so just wanted a nice relaxing day around Mendocino. Unfortunately, as the bed and breakfast was fully booked and we have only booked it for the one night we had to find somewhere else. We first thought about Fort Bragg being only 20 minutes away but first would have a look around the bed and breakfast’s around Mendocino….can you tell we really did not want to drive!
We asked the lady if she could recommend anywhere else, she suggested we try Algeria, as she called them. The best price alga could do without breakfast was slightly out of the budget but we thought we would have a look.
The vibe in the Alegrea was fantastic but the price was not….so they recommended two hotels one was the mendocino hotel on Main Street. We drove across to the mendocino hotel and asked to see the room. As soon as we entered the hotel it had the vibe of somebody was murdered there!!! Okay better check the room….wow not to our taste also the shower was shared. Instead of checking the other hotel we went back to Algeria and check in!!!

After speeding time in the reception area we had a wonder along Main Street, which is full of quaint shops and art galleries.
We headed back to the hotel to relax in the reception check up on email. Afterwards we had a walk to the beach which was very nice and quite.
Sangeet bought a hoodie from one of the shops…..very fashionable
In the evening we went back to the Raven restaurant, sometimes if a restaurant is very good we go back just to make sure!! Well that is our excuse! It was like the previous night very good!
After dinner we had a chat with the food director and nutritionist we mentioned the food was very nice but do they change the ingredients of the same dish? He said no and apologised as it should be the same. We mentioned we are back for breakfast and he said one of your breakfasts will be free.
Woohoo, well when you are traveling on a budget it all helps!
Happily we went back to the hotel. Our actual room is across the road from the main hotel, it did not have the same vibe but as we were both shattered and needed some sleep it did not matter.
Popped to the original Babycakes in NYC. Cookie crunch and two chocolate cupcakes. All are vegan and there is a very good range of gluten free.
On the way we went past a chinese bakery and a beautiful buddhist temple.
This morning we (Prith, Vladimir, Ms Lindt, Ms Mozambique and myself went to whole foods in Santa Fe to get some supplies and extra fruit, then popped to Body so Vladimir could get a yoga mat and cushion. On the way we were playing a number of songs.
When we arrived back at Espanola, we attended the Gurdwara programme, it was fantastic to see the local sangat, they remember me as Sangeet’s husband, they so love Sangeet here. We then has lunch followed by our first class!! We were told which groups we are to be in, mine is Udaare. A fantastic group where we all just jelled together. We went around each person in the group and say who we are and what/who motivated us to come, I mentioned that Sangeet is a great inspiration and so motivated me to come.
Afterwards, we attended a class held by Nirvair Singh, where we did a yoga kriya followed by Yogi Harbhajan video which had a fantastic kriya.
We then had beet lasagne. Walked down to the Gold House, where we all sat in the communal section and chatted, Brian, one of the house guests played the guitar.
