In these days of strip malls, traffic jams and cookie cutter track homes wouldn’t be wonderful to rediscover a place that Norman Rockwell could have painted? A place where every home is uniquely crafted, where ice cream is served at a soda fountain and people share stories at the barber shop.
Such a town does exist. I stumbled across it in Northern California nestled near the ocean and miles away from the main artery of highway 101. It’s “frozen in time” and that’s just the way its residents want to keep it.
I almost hesitate to give away this town’s name. But since you are reading this website, you obviously have the good taste to never trample such a rare find. It is called Ferndale and it’s just a few miles South of Eureka.
Stop by and stroll through the cemetery on the hill over looking the town and then feel lucky to be alive by having an ice cream at the “Candy Stick Soda and Grill”.
