Fading Fast



This barn is a relic here on the Mendocino Coast and will soon be gone due to lack of care. It sits just above highway 1 in a neighborhood called Surfwood, and quite the majestic perch it is don't you think? You can see the slivers of light pouring through the roofing boards just inside the opening which is evidence that it can't last all that much longer. In the meantime though it is still a grand wonder to behold and we cherish it, imagining how it might have been used in bygone days. The painting might need a sheep or two, but that just wouldn't be true to life at this point in time. Instead, feel calmed by the crashing waves and serene view of the   aging antique against the vast blue body of water beyond.
