Catalina Canceled.

Our big adventure planned with Big Dude’s parents was a day trip to Catalina Island.  We had our ferry reservations and our island tour reservations, our lunch packed and our camera bags stuffed, our excitement level high.  We arrived at the harbor to discover the ferry was canceled.  Because Wind. 

So we defaulted to Laguna Beach.  Where it was also windy.  We explored the Laguna Art Museum, an art gallery, a couple stores, and the beautiful beach pathway.  It wasn’t Catalina, but it wasn’t a bad alternative.  I love where we live.

Downstairs was a neat collection of paintings of Los Angeles “City Life” 1930-1950s.  I’m tremendously partial to watercolors.

And here’s where they waited for me to finish meandering…

And here’s where they waited for me when I last-minute decided to meander through the gift shop on my way out …

More waiting.  Look alike much?

So, not Catalina.  But not bad.

Yeah, not bad at all. ;-) LOVE the reflection of you and Big Dude in the watercolor city. That would be awesome in a frame. And Jesus and Mary--what a funky place!
