Hi Friends! Today I thought I would share some images I shot in Ferndale, CA, en route to my son's college. This is a tiny, historic Victorian town in far northern California near the breathtaking coast and is quite a wonderful departure from where we live in SoCal. I loved the architecture and charm of this little place. Ferndale is where food network TV star Guy Fieri called home for most of his childhood. :) He must be an adaptable guy because this town is TINY and yet he has successfully navigated Hollywood. Crazy difference. :)
Here we go!
Below is a shot of the main drag in town. It is a super sleepy little town but oh-so-cute!
I loved this church, below:
I could have photographed every home...here is a typical street:
This abandoned bike had vines growing through it!
Lots of gingerbread:
The home below is more Arts and Crafts, but I loved the stone wall on the exterior:
Details of some of the intricate architectural mouldings:
Ferndale is just south of Eureka/Arcata on Hwy 101. I noticed that the flowers were especially healthy what with all that ocean mist and fog they must get all the time. While there, we had a quick snack and discussed whether or not we could ever live in such a tiny town...made for an interesting discussion.
I hope you enjoyed the images. :) I want to go back!
