Catalina Island For The Day
Last weekend we decided to head over to Catalina Island for the day. Neither Matt or myself have been to Catalina or any of the Channel Islands, and apparently it is one of those things that every Southern Californian needs to do. We left out of Newport Beach on the Catalina Flyer ferry in the morning.
It was a pretty rough ride over as a swell had shown up. I concentrated really hard on not getting sick, while Matt was taking pictures on the second deck.
After we disembarked the ferry and got rid of our sea legs, we walked to the Wrigley Botanical Gardens. On the way we stopped at the Catalina Island Conservancy for a little island environmental information.
We then continued up the hill to the gardens.
After the botanical gardens we walked back down to Avalon and went to the Catalina Island Casino.
After we went to the museum at the Casino, it was pretty much time to head back to the ferry dock. We casually made our way back to the ferry where we then headed back to Newport Beach.
