I recently flew back to California to visit with my oldest friend in the world. Forty-five years we’ve been friends, so it had to be special.
We decided to do it right, and visit several locales on both our bucket lists. When you’ve accomplished most everything else in your life, it’s nice to have a bucket list to tackle next.
It was also my 65th birthday week, so I decided to treat myself to a 10-day excursion strutting around California in style.
Santa Barbara and other coastal destinations were also included.
What? Too braggy?
Catalina Island just happened to be on Nora’s list, so we jetted across from Avalon to Catalina on a ferry boat, and landed in one of the most idyllic spots (outside of the Mediterranean) I’ve ever seen.
I won’t pretend to be the most talented photographer that ever photographed parts of Catalina Island, but I will take credit for being one of the most awed.
It’s a super duper hot spot, and I hope you get sense of what Nora and I experienced. We had a dandy time.
It really was, spooky beautiful!!!
