We had had a busy day – all in the blustery wind. We had done the Skunk Train, walked around Mendicino, visited Point Cabrillo Lighthouse and climbed the rocks at Glass Beach. Now we were hungry. The first night in town we had eaten at an Italian Restaurant which wasn’t bad, but we wanted something “oceany.”
We asked at the desk and they told us to go the wharf where there was a lot of restaurants – but where was the wharf? We had seen trains and gift shops and the ocean … but no wharf. Turns out the wharf was tucked into a small bay, surrounded by hills – hidden away from the main thoroughfare.
The wharf looked exactly like you would expect a wharf to look – no tourism here, just some fishing companies and a few restaurants. We headed for Silvers and asked for a seat overlooking the water.
