The mister and I were invited on a last-minute trip to Catalina Island last weekend. (The mister had never been, and the last time I was there it was for a one week youth group camp. All I remember from that week was the giant spider hanging in a tree next to my bed, making lanyards, and surviving on nothing but root beer and M&Ms.)
We didn’t take the ferry boat to get to Catalina …
… instead we took this bad girl:
The morning was kind of cloudy and cold …
… but when we arrived in Avalon, the sun finally made an appearance and it was a beautiful day!
Aren’t the golf carts on the island just too cute?
Along the walk, we passed Big Olaf’s Ice Cream and WOW! did those waffle cones smell good!
After a great lunch along the beach, we headed back to the boat.
I even got to drive the boat on the way back! Although I could hardly see where we were going, and apparently I was headed dead-on for a sailboat.
It was a great day with great friends!
The mister and I cannot wait to go back, maybe stay at this hotel, check out the inside of the Casino, see some buffalo, go zip-lining, (and maybe get some of that ice cream in those delicious smelling waffle cones!)
Have you been to Catalina? What’s your favorite thing to do there?
