China Camp







We stopped at China Camp State Park, on our way up the coast to visit with my daughter and her husband. This park is rich with history--ghosts of the past are all over the place. Back in the day, there was a whole little village on a shore of the San Francisco bay, a shrimp fishing village--it's a beautiful spot.
We have our own ghosts in this park--my husband worked here and I would bring my three children here for picnics, to camp, for Easter egg hunts--this camp is a part of their childhood, and a part of my past as a young wife and mother.

Hi Martha--similar in a way to Cranberry, but located very close to San Francisco, and a very small shrimping village compared to Cranberry.

Hi Dean, I believe that the person pictured in yellow, is one of the children in red, and he may still be living in the village--one of the last and yes you can feel the lives of the others in that energized place!
