is not for me. That’s right. I would never ever go back to Catalina island unless you can guarantee me that the other side of the island (not Avalon) is not full of birds or anything. I don’t know how my fear came about… I mean I’ve always been a little afraid of birds but now my pigeon fear has reached… Let’s just say I have Ornithophobia. Anyway, Mr.S berated me saying that I should’ve looked up about birds before travelling somewhere. WTF Where was I supposed to get this information? Out of my bum? There’s no page on the internet that warns you about pigeons… dur. I think they mentioned like those birds of prey but they weren’t much of a concern of mine since they weren’t that close to the city… That I know.
Anyway, we begun our journey to Catalina island on a town car. They call them limos (that are not stretch) here in Toronto. It’s a Lincoln. Lalala on our way to the Marina. I took pics for instagram ala Adam Irigoyen. (he takes lots of pics of sceneries).
We took the ferry to Catalina Island from Marina Del Rey. It is about 1 1/2 hr. FUN, right? Lol. Make sure to bring a sweater because it gets pretty chilly.
Fare is $40/per person/per trip one way. So in total, $80/per person round trip.
So it’s going to be a short post. Just posting pics here.
May be a pic from when we first arrived or when we left. Either way.
I feel like I’m on an island. But you know, the tropical kind. Anyway, I spent a good portion hiding from birds.
Got hungry and ended up at Luau Larry’s. I am assuming it’s Larry cause that goes well with Luau but I am too lazy to check.
How attractive of you, Mr.S. He’s having a swordfish sandwich.
Swordfish tacos to share.
Just fish and chips. Had better in Toronto but this one is still better than London. WTF makes no sense. You’d think they mastered fish and chips over there lololol!!
This me is outside, before I cried. About birds and stuff! There’s some drama about birds, arguing… we were supposed to go on some open boat tour. Tour forced us upon submarine tour. I didn’t want to go…blablabla. Plus there were birds and whatnot.
Went mini golf. No pics, we tied. Okay he allowed me to cheat a little <3 Whatever. I was half paranoid during the whole thing because I saw bird shit everywhere. Nasty. Oh and we had icecream afterwards. I was afraid of going outside with it ... paranoia. Blablabla.
Finally got to leave. BYE you stinkin island. Make up ruined. Had to take off my falsies.
Close up of the houses/stores on the island. It really doesn’t look American. More European… Greek-like no?
On our ferry ride back to the Marina, we saw whales! Several whales in fact!
And they were spouting water! Amazing. To think that some people go on whale watching adventures and never see them. And here I am, not looking for any of them and there they are. I felt so happy! Mind you, I don’t want to be on a tiny boat next to it. Just saw Nim’s Island last night. The mom got eaten by a whale or something?
Then finally, we got to meet up with my friends from my forum. Okay, so DaRon was the original founder… I was still an admin, and an active one at that. Active on the forum not physically active (anymore). So I got to meet Joey and Lena. We had sushi at BAD sushi – sushi was pretty good but the service could be better. Then fatigue hit me and Mr.S like a ton of bricks. We wanted to hang out with them more but alas, we were too tired. Next time I go to LA, we’ll for sure hang out more. I think I have met the most forum members.
