catalina here we come...

Ok well not until Friday, but I am getting super excited,
as my mom, sis and I are having a girls getaway to a pretty
cool place that I have been wanting to see for quite a while!

Catalina Island is about 22 miles off the coast of Los Angeles and
only about an hour boat ride - I am bringing some ginger pills
just in case the water is a bit choppy - crossing my fingers it isn't!

The town has around 4,000 residents year round and very few
are allowed to have cars (there is quite a long waiting list for it, like decades)
 Most peoples mode of transportation there are golf carts or bikes. (We will
be cruising around town in a cool golf cart!) I haven't driven one of those in
35 years when I worked at a huge landscaping nursery in San Francisco. 

I don't think we'll be doing any sun bathing, but a nice walk on the
beach would be fun, weather permitting!

We don't really have anything planned (or at least I don't) but I am
sure my sis has a few things up her sleeve for us to do.

a little bit early - but hey, I'm excited!

Have a wonderful end of the week and

weekend, be good to yourself and

smile at a stranger, we all need that!

I think the suspense and the anticipation of a getaway is as much fun as the actual time away! Sounds like you're going to have a lovely weekend...sometimes having nothing planned is the best way to go -- then you are open to all the experiences that come your way!

I love the idea of getting away and not having a packed agenda. Those have been some of my best vacations. I hope you relax and breath in lots of fresh ocean air.. Cathi.
