Both Lori and I fondly remember getting the little variety packs of cereals when our families vacationed. For my family that was about the only time we got to enjoy sugared cereals like Trix and Cocoa Puffs. So while we were at the store last night we decided that we should celebrate our little vacation with a bit of tradition. You can’t use the boxes as the bowls like you used to, and the Trix are a bit brighter than I remember them, but the Cocoa Puffs still taste pretty yummy.
After our in room breakfast, we headed down the coast to Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens. It had been some time since we had visited the garden, since the last time we were there I was shooting with my Minolta film camera. One advantage to shooting digital was that it didn’t cost anything to take pictures of not only every plant we liked, but I also took pictures of the plant’s identification tag so we would remember what it was. However, some plants, like this flowering cactus, didn’t have signs, so I can’t tell you what this one is. Pretty wild flower though and it looks pretty inviting if you’re a bumble bee.
