California City Honors Local Superhero

img_0329

Okay so not really.  This is a picture of a street sign in Dana Point, CA.  If you don’t believe me, you can see the street on Google.  The headland is named after Richard Henry Dana, Jr., who spent time in the area and wrote Two Years Before the Mast, a memoir of his time as a sailor in the early 1800s.  Consequently, when the area was developed in the 1920s, they named the streets after the colored lanterns sailors used to signal one another.

Although the hometown of Hal Jordan, the second Green Lantern, is Coast City, which is supposedly somewhere in California.

Getting this picture has been a goal of mine for a while.  The only thing that would make it more awesome would be a traffic signal with a Green Arrow.
