Just a few more photos of Santa Catalina Island...
I met two wonderful women last summer and guess who I ran into the minute we got to shore?
Meg is on the left. She owns a wonderful gift store called Golden State, full of items from local artisans.
She herself being an amazing one!
And her friend on the right is Angie. Angie and her husband own Dingy Docks which sells Eco-friendly products and organic foods. You can also get boat parts which makes me laugh but somehow makes total sense.
This is Megs work. I bought these tea towels which she screens her designs on. These are the famous flying fish of Catalina.
I used them for pillows which I forgot to tell Meg about.
Meg...they turned out great!
No trip would be complete with out a souvenir of some sort
Look at this store and look at what I bought....Don't you love it?
I was thinking of getting a whole set until I turned the plate over.
The lodging seems to be getting a bit more upscale here. They have done a nice job with this hotel.
The old school retro stuff is what I really enjoy.
This bus takes you on a scenic tour for about an hour. It comes equipped with oscillating fans and those huge windows and skylights.
You really have to wonder how they got this huge thing over here.
But then again, there are Buffalo on the island too.
More weird tours. I bet the old Casino building is haunted
This is Descanso bay below.
All new cabanas and chaise lounges with food service too.
Very Mediterranean looking.
This is paradise for kayaking and diving.
Greg and I always try to walk as much as we can. The back streets are usually the most interesting.
How about that green paint WOW
A bit like stepping back to the 50's I think
We walked up to the country club.
This is an ideal spot for a Wedding, very picturesque and lush with lots of huge old palm and eucalyptus trees
And the people watching is the best part....
I have absolutely no idea why or what this was about but it's much better than television.
She was so waterlogged after three days of swimming.
She will probably sleep for about 24 hours and then be ready for her next adventure.
Sorry about the dirty socks and boat shoes. Comes with the territory.
