Sea Ranch Birthday Party

Two weeks ago, our family took an extended weekend to celebrate my father’s 80th birthday. We rented two houses at Sea Ranch on the California coast near Mendocino. Dinners were split between the houses and there was much visiting back and forth. We spent months in advance putting together a video with photos donated by many members of the family. We did our best to keep the project a secret but he guessed anyway. We showed the video twice and passed out a DVD copy to each family group.

Sea Ranch is a private community which has gone to great efforts to be respectful of its unique seacoast environment. The houses are designed to be unobtrusive from the outside, so much so that everyone got lost trying to find where we were staying! Here are some of the photos:
