Birthday Voyage to Catalina

For Dan's birthday on July 9th we hopped on the Catalina Express to enjoy his special day!
Riding the boat to Catalina Island
When we arrived we were greeted by merpeople and seashells aplenty.

Is that Cousin Meghan and her beau?
We enjoyed some time at many beaches.

We enjoyed our time at the Catalina museum which was featuring a fantastic exhibit by Dale Chihuly.

We also enjoyed an electric trolley ride up to the William Wrigley Memorial (he once owned the entire island and the Chicago Cubs had their spring training there from 1920-1950).

We also had a grand time biking along the coast and up to the Descanso Beach Club where we each had a nice beachy cocktail while listening to a band.

Then we were steered to the Lobster Trap where we had a phenomenal meal of fresh caught sand dabs, and grilled mahi-mahi. It was fantastic! After watching the sun go down we took a ferry boat back to the main land.

It was a fantastic celebration befitting of a terrific guy.


  1. LOVELY! Happy belated, Dan:)

  2. You two really know how to have FUN!

  3. I enjoyed reading about your day. We visited Catalina once upon a time while we were in Newport Beach for a business trip. A lovely respite from the madness of LA.
