Image #246 – Tango in Ferndale

So, some of Tango’s fans wanted to know where he was on the recent trip to Ferndale. We offered him a spa day but he insisted on coming along.  He enjoyed the blacksmith shop a lot.SAMSUNG CSC

Here he is sitting next to some cool tables made from old water meter covers.

And then he had a little sit down in a nice shady seat.  Tango is never too far away from me. He’s having a grand time. ❧

Image #245 – Ferndale

Humboldt County is very large and quite diverse.  Geographically it is about the size of Connecticut.  There are the notorious marijuana grows in the mountains and forests but there is also a lot of other agriculture in and around this county. The area is also very old and some towns have maintained the architectural flavor of their history. Ferndale is a perfect example.

Crossing Fernbridge (above) you begin to immediately feel that something is different. The dairy farms that dot the landscape are neat and well maintained. Signs welcome you to Ferndale and upon arrival you are transported back in time to the Victorian era that marked a heyday of this town.

The Catholic Church is a prime example of the Victorian architecture that has been maintained throughout the town.  All the storefronts in the town are from the late 1800s and early 1900s.  It is very peaceful and gives you a real sense of how American used to be. ❧
