Catalina is such a gem. If you take the ferry and want to be sure you don’t get sea sick, take the pills (ask your doctor or pharmacist) and stay above deck looking out at the horizon. Going below deck makes it worse.

Mr. Murty and I took advantage of the birthday deal one year on my birthday.  It was a fun day.  We had to laugh because a kid approached Mr. Murty on the beach and basically called him a pasty white guy.

Laura - Catalina Island is a fun place to stay for a quick weekend getaway. Taking the ferry is the only way to go.

I haven't been to Catalina since the mid 1980s.  It truly is one of the delightful places on the planet.  I need to return one day soon.  When I went, it was by helicoptor taken near the Queen Mary!

Hello Laura ... I can't believe that I have never been to Catilina Island. As much time as I have spent living and traveling in California, it baffles me ;o/
