Obelisk has it! Good job.

Fallard gets the bonus point:

"When the Bruno de Hezeta expedition took possession of the bay on June 11, 1775, he called it Puerto de la Trinidad because it was Trinity Sunday. The earliest recorded wharf was a wharf constructed alongside Trinidad Head in 1870; it was used for both passengers and cargo (especially lumber). The site itself was earlier used as a whaling station.

The current all-wooden pier dates back to 1946 when it was constructed with contributions from the Arcata Lumberjacks' Association. It was then, and still is, one of the main launching sites for sportfishing craft along this wild stretch of coast."

Whatcha got for us Obelisk?
