Sunday we took a boat out to Catalina Island. It stormed the day before so the sky was clear and everything else was fresh and clean and the air was beautiful. It was the perfect day to go.
Catalina seemed very "Lord of the Flies" to us. Piggy, Ralph and Jack could of hopped out of the landscape demanded to know what we were doing on their island. It was such a small little place and I found myself wondering what kind of weird folk decide they want to make home there. Aside from the cluster of homes and dock and airport, the rest of the island was just wild brush. I guess the attraction is that they live on an island...? Our conclusion was that Catalina was beautiful, but a strange place.
One fun thing that we saw - there were cats everywhere. Feral cats live all over the island and they were some of the most majestic creatures I've seen! Especially the one I saw that looked like a miniature lion - what a beard it had!
