Point Arena, CA
Point Arena, CA, although an incorporated city, is really a small town. Our home is about 5 miles outside the city limits but we enjoy being "in town".
|The main street of Point Arena is about 3 blocks long.||This sign gives instructions at our recycling center.||The "cove" at Point Arena hosts a small fishing fleet. In the winter, crab pots are parked with the boats.||On July 4, there is always a parade. Here some local residents prepare their personal viewing places.|
|The official reviewing stand is set up in the center of town.||People start gathering in front of the library.||The parade is rarely on time but it always starts with an honor guard.||The honor guard will have flowers in their guns and will be advocating peace.|
