Gypsy is doing great! Here he is with Today Show’s Travel Editor, Peter Greenberg.
Peter came to Mendocino County to broadcast his weekly Worldwide Radio Show. Several years ago his producers asked us to send video tape of of guests with their dogs as well as a selection of our pet amenities for a segment on traveling with pets on the Today Show. As one of the first independent inns to accept pets in California we were known as a leader in pet hospitality. Peter featured the Stanford Inn on a Saturday, very early in the morning. (Neither Gypsy or I are early risers!)
Peter Greenberg has an encyclopedic mind and is insightful and obviously compassionate. He travels more than 400,000 miles each year, serves as a volunteer fireman in New York and has homes on both coasts.
During his visit he interviewed Katy Tahja, Mendocino historian, author, lover of sea palm, and expert on Mendocino writers. Katy is usually at Gallery Books helping shoppers find books and organizing the store’s inventory. Kate Hee, owner of Fort Bragg’s Outdoor Store discussed Mendocino County’s amazing variety of recreational experiences from exploring wineries to mushroom foraging, ocean kayaking to whitewater rafting, whale watching to mountain biking through redwood forests. Hal Wagenet spoke about the Mendocino County lifestyle – particularly as evinced by those with long histories in the County. The residents of his hometown, Willlits, have organized to fund and build the Country’s first ‘green hospital,” which was named after the Frank R. Howard, the son of the owner of Seabisquit. Charles Howard provided funds for a hospital that might have saved his son who died following an automobile accident.
