Default clandestine note:

HI guys - got them - am glad you had a great vacation - say hi to all.

To answer the question and request on your note.

# 1 That area is called "Rancho" and it is one of the earlier areas to be settled due to the proximity to deep water channels to fish and the Docks and Wharves. It was mostly inhabited by seamen (sailors) and fishermen. It was also a place known for the making of the small fishing dinghies. It developed a shady sort of nuance to it for a while and it was said, "You don't walk in Rancho after dark" I have never found that to be true.

# 2 I will walk around down there and see if I can put something together. If I do, it will be called "Rancho" OK? Regards to you all.

be well
