B and I did a day trip to Catalina Island using the Catalina Express Ferry from Long Beach. We decided to do a glass-bottom boat ride, followed by an interior tour of the island that allowed us to see the Wrigley ranch/El Rancho Escondido, Arabian horses, the bison, and the Airport in the Sky. We found out that the casino building is actually a movie theater, and not a gambling facility.
Above is a picture of Avalon's harbor. Below is me with the wind blowing my hair across my face (lol).
