At certain times of day this street is actually quite calm and deserted, but since this corner serves the Mendocino Art Center and the Mendocino High School, it can also be quite the happening spot. I'll be teaching a class at the Art Center next May and we very well might hunker down with our supplies and give this scene another go. It never ceases to amaze me how these little houses, water towers and gardens stack up to create an unparalleled vision of quaintness. I guess I spend a lot of my life gasping in amazement. Must be why I live here.
