it only took me 6 years of living in california + a groupon for boat tickets for me to FINALLY visit catalina! and it was glorious! perfect weather + amazing friends + gorgeous views. you can’t beat that!
thank the heavens (and dramamine) i did not get sea sick! after a breezy one-hour boat ride, we arrived in beautiful avalon! with only 6 hours of play time on the island, we made the most of our trip. went straight for the kayaks, found a sunken ship, grubbed on some fish & chips, raided a candy/ice-cream shop, toured the island on golf carts, crashed a kid’s soccer match for some shaved ice, found a disney store, grabbed some drinks on the beach, and met a deer. it was a perfect day-vaca!
