In 1955, parts of the John Wayne movie Blood Alley were filmed at China Camp.   I was going for a bit of 1955 black-and-white moodiness in this photo.

I wouldn't wait to be served -- it might be a while -- the cafe at China Camp is pretty much perpetually closed.

Best chances for a beer (((and maybe a hot dog))) might be the big Heritage Day Celebration on August 29 -- all sorts of interesting things will be going on at China Camp that day.

Frank with a net.   I retreated to a safer position when I thought he might be getting ready to throw that net over my head and pesky camera.

HI BIRDY -- Thanks for stopping by -- mi casa es su casa...

AND HI LOUISE -- Yes, I like how they've coordinated it with my birthday... Maybe I'll phone ahead and see if Frank Quan knows how to bake a cake...
