You might see a blank canvas, but we see the beginning stages of Fort Bragg's newest mural. One of our local Mendocino Coast artists, the talented Ryan Grossman (rgrossmanart), has put together an incredible design featuring the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse, and it will be going up in downtown Fort Bragg, California as part of the Fort Bragg Alleyway Art Project (fortbraggalleywayart)!

Any guesses as to where it'll be? (if you already know, shhhh, NO SPOILERS)

Follow the progress of the piece at fortbraggalleywayart and rgrossmanart on Instagram!

And a HUGE thank you to Margaret, the generous sponsor of this very special mural!

Iconic Fort Bragg. Life is certainly opening up and we are looking forward to a bustling summer on the coast. Now's the time to book that trip! When you do come visit we want you to feel like part of the community AND we encourage you to do your part to keep Fort Bragg beautiful by keeping your footprint small. Always pick up after a day at the beach and try bringing your own reusable water bottles and utensils for take out to cut down on trash. These little will make a big difference for our small town! #ILoveFortBragg

It is deplorable to consider cutting these trees while in a drought emergency. Second growth redwoods have been shown to pull in as much as 38” of fog drip- in two and a half months, during the dry season!!! And yes, that water enters the water table. Not only that, but logging is a water intensive job. It’s a lose lose!

The vast fog bank was once again sitting just offshore in the afternoon. Most of the small fishing vessels that had spent the day out on the open water were quickly making their way back to the safety of the harbor.

This ocean pool reminds me of the Six of Swords - half the water is choppy and half is smooth. The theme of this card emphasizes the acceptance of change. To let go of things in your life that no longer fit and to allow this space to foster evolution and growth.
.
Today I’m adding in extra time for the quiet. To reflect on what I’m being called to let go of. The beauty of transitions comes from the learned experience.
.
I’d love for you to share in the comments if this theme resonates and what emerges! ✨

You know that incredible photo you took in Fort Bragg? The one that really captures the spirit of our favorite coastal town? Well, how would you like to see that picture hanging in a downtown Fort Bragg Gallery – or in an exclusive set of posters and postcards? The Great Fort Bragg Photo Collection is a call for the best pictures taken by our many fans of Fort Bragg. Photos will be broken into four categories (Coast, Downtown, Forest and General), and one Favorite will be selected in each category with an Instagram poll to determine the Best Picture. From the winning entries, we will be creating posters and postcards that will be available for sale online and at stores around town!

You in? Here's how it works:

Snap - Take a shot or share one you took before
Post - Put the photo on your Instagram feed
Tag - #FortBraggPhotos (or edit a post with the hashtag)
Vote - Choose your favorites in an IG poll later this month

Some Rules:

Locations:
Photos must have been taken within or nearby the City of Fort Bragg. No photos taken north of MacKerricher State Park, east of Jackson Demonstration Forest or south of Caspar will be accepted as entries (this means no Russian Gulch or 10 Mile Beach for this collection)

Usage:
Once submitted, the Visit Fort Bragg Committee are free to use the photos for marketing and promotional activities for the City of Fort Bragg.

Just like trust that takes time to build, healing also takes time to feel. - Verliza Gajeles
.
Working through your shadows, loving your inner child, embracing small pieces of lightness- this is all part of the healing journey. Nothing is linear. Nothing is perfect.
.
The intention of healing is to soften into it. To keep trying. To keep listening. To honor that what we learn from our mistakes becomes a powerful part of our story.
.
Healing isn’t always soft and compassionate. Sometimes it’s in the despair, the fight, the rest, and the willingness to lift our gaze and begin again. And still, with all that effort, we can gently hold all our pieces as they slowly bind together, building the most beautiful and powerful, ever-evolving versions of ourselves.

Pause. Find stillness. Breathe. Move.
.
Surrender into the cycles of your energy. Surrender doesn’t mean give up, instead it is an invitation to soften. To resist less. To simply be you in this moment and the next. ✨

It was a chilly 47 degrees on our Coast today. I withstood the wind to do a quick walk on the Glass Beach Trail. I didn't want to have my phone out long because it was so chilly,. But I did manage to snap this pretty decent shot. There is something about the winter ocean and skies that just can't be beat. Do you like winter or summer views best?

Becoming comfortable in the UNcomfortable is a place I’ve been swimming in a lot these past couple of years. The sensations have become more familiar as I have let myself explore the joy of moving through unknowns without expectations. Rather than turning inward I’ve faced the invitations and am embracing all the new ways I’ve learned to grow and experience this wild world.
.
Stay present, notice the unfamiliar, and visualize yourself trying out different swim strokes as you navigate uncharted waters. Important moments don’t have to be serious and moments of levity can be gut wrenching. How amazing is this beautiful, constantly shifting life we’ve been gifted? ✨
