No, really...it was the best.


A few weeks ago I had planned a ginormous Summer Day Trip to Catalina Island where a ginormous summer group could go kayak, eat, drink, and be merry.

There were a good 12 of us that had planned to go.

But then.

8 people decided to be lame and bailed.
{I think one person's brother just had a baby or something. Lame, right?}

So anyway!
It was me, The Dizzle, my brother, and his wife.
{and their unborn child, if you want to get technical.}

We decided that every picture needed to portray us having the best.day.of.our.lives just so everyone would know how much they missed out on.

Please see below:


Okay.
So now that we got the photographic proof that this was clearly the best.day.ever out of the way,
we can move on.

...

You guys, I can't believe that I have been born and raised in San Diego, a mere hour and a half {by ferry} to Catalina Island and this is the first time I've been!
This place is amazing!

We swam in the sea!
We danced with 75 year olds to music like the La Bamba!
We explored the land and ate mouth-watering nachos!

Though, kayaking we did not do, it was still a really great day,
with a breathtaking view of the sunset on the boat ride home...from what I can remember.


Catalina, this is not the end for us.
I shall be back. Oh yes, I shall.

xoxo

  2. i have great memories from my 21st in catalina, by 2 best girlfriends took me there....from what i remember i passed out on the street, thought that magical deer lived in this tiny little door we found in one of the bars...and then i jumped out of our cab before it came to a stop at our campsite...the next day we went to the beach and every other local there would say " o hey! you're that girl from last night!" i don't know if that's a good thing or not.

  8. Thank God that pink shirt made it into some more photographs...this time, on Dizzle. Looks like it WAS the best day ever. However you can't taunt me with crafty little titles like that...because I thought you were going to drop a bomb like Dizzle engaged.

  26. I've been following you on instagram for awhile & I love your blog. I am from Tx & coming out to San Diego mid Nov. & would LOVE some suggestions on what to do there. We are staying 2 nights on Coronado Island & 2 nights on Shelter Island ( wedding at Bali Hai).

    1. Gabby - Thank you! Coronado is a lot of fun, luck you! I haven't really done a TON there though, other than hang out on the beach for a few hours. But it's great to walk around, maybe rent one of those bicycle cars and explore the island!
      As for Shelter Island, the only thing I've done there is run around it a time or two during marathon training. But I think there are some great restaurants around there.
      So....pretty lame suggestions, huh?

  30. Hilarious!! I'm dying over the picture of the guys jumping!

    I went to Catalina with my family when I was 9 and we stayed a week or so. Loved it. I need to go back ASAP and experience it as an adult. But I have 2 vivid memories of it. I went snorkeling and found a shell I brought back to our condo. I set it on the kitchen counter and woke up the next morning to a SHRIMP that had crawled out of it. Horrifying thing to wake up to. And second, do you remember the sunscreen in the 90s that were purple or blue and turned to white when you rubbed it in? Well, I was putting the purple sunscreen on when it squirted ALL OVER the white carpet and rug on the floor of our friend's condo. No stair remover would remove it. 14 years later and I'm still in trouble for it. I need a Cataline redo!
