The Victorian town of Ferndale, California

Ferndale's claim to fame is that the homes and the businesses are of Victorian architecture, and they maintain them very well.  The streets are lined with house of all colors, with gingerbread designs.  We shopped and walked the streets, admiring the beauty.  All of the shops in town are full and Wal-Mart, CVS, McDonald's, Home Depot type chains are allowed here.  It makes it feel good, real, like a small hometown should be. We have seen several of these type of towns in California.  I wish other places would do the same.
On the way home we stopped for a wonderful lunch at the Loleta Bakery in Loleta and visited the Loleta Cheese company, where they make 30 varieties of cheese.  We purchased some Habanero cheese for Vince and some Fontina cheese for Debbie to use in recipes.  They also have a garden, which was filled with many varieties of flowers and succulents.
