...Santa Catalina is a waitin' for me"!
We just took a fun day trip to the beautiful island of Catalina! Here's a photo of the "Catalina Flyer" we rode to Catalina Island! It has a catamaran hull, so is quite fast and smooth! The trip takes only 75 minutes to reach the island from Balboa. As you can see, it turned out to be a very cool and cloudy day!
Arriving in the quaint little town of Avalon!
One of the first things you notice when arriving in the harbor is the Casino. It was built in 1929 by William Wrigley (of the chewing gum). It is a popular landmark and tourist attraction and is actually a movie theater, museum and ballroom, not a casino!
One of our favorite places to eat is at the "Fish and Chips" on the pier! This is where we ate lunch. Their fish and chips are the best!
We relaxed on the beach for awhile before heading back.
We really had a wonderful day! On our trip back to the mainland, we were escorted by a school of dolphins! It was not easy trying to take pictures because they were so quick!
Jaclyn said this was her best day ever!
