Are you kidding that is no problem at all. I feel like we all know Jack and hope he feels better and am sorry for his losses. Thanks for saying that you enjoy my shots. Glad I could help ease the pain of waiting for your next trip. My potential next trip is probably two years away. How sad for me. Again thanks for the nice comments.

Great pictures of Catalina! Did you make it back to the Wrigley Garden to see the plants?

Can't wait to see your glass bottom boat pictures.

Thank you for skipping ahead to the Catalina portion, Mike (which I suspect you did because I was asking you questions before I head over to Avalon next week)!

Lovely photos, as I expected! That first glimpse of Catalina that you got is Hamilton Cove - a little enclave with condos and villas. I've never stayed there but everyone says it's great.

It's really too bad that you had to skip Wrigley, but I know what you mean about the cab fare (meter)! If I recall, I think we (friends and I) only did one hour in the cart on our very first day trip to Catalina. (And we also did the glass bottom boat on our very first trip,too.) It was only on subsequent trips that we started doing the 'get 3 hours for the price of 2' deal. But with 6 people, 2 hours is expensive! Even with 4 people it's costly. I'm going to take 3 hours in the golf cart next week, but I know the sorts of things I have to do and how much time it will take me. I am not even sure I could get done with Wrigley (knowing my photo habits) in 3 hours of golf cart time, but I will try!

Believe it or not, some of the shops in Avalon are quite cool (Perico Gallery, for example), but along Crescent there are a lot of touristy shops.

Anyway, I look forward to the glass-bottom boat portion of the trip!

Oh, by the way, I way cringing in horror at your description of the swells and people getting sick. I've been fortunate thus far to never get sick on the boat and to not encounter big swells. But I know it's only a matter of time, quite frankly. I'm older. The equilibrium changes. I know that I may be in for some trouble if I don't pop a Dramamine next week...just in case.

I have seen people getting sick in Avalon, right by the area where people get on and off the Catalina Express, which was, um...pleasant.

We did make it to Wrigley Gardens but not out of the Golf Cart. We were so worried about the time.

Well I have to say you did kind of influence me. No worries. Hope you have a blast over there.!

First off, best wishes to Jack and his family. I hope and pray that everything turns out fine.

Mike, I'm enjoying your shots. One of my best friends and his family live in Colorado Springs, but fortunately they were not in danger.

Can't wait to hear and see more!

It is a nice get away. We loved the feeling of being on the ocean but not subjected to the cruise vacation. This was our first time being on the ocean without being able to see land from the boat. Makes you appreciate how small we really are.

Thanks for joining Sleepless Knight. Always love your insight. Forgive me because I sometimes forget but you were named sleeping jedi beauty, right? My wife turned me on to your trip reports way back when. You always gave the best reports.

Your going to have a blast Kerry. Everytime I hear someone is going for the first time I think back to our family's first time in 2007. We went for a short 4 day weekend kind of thing during Halloween time. We use to think WDW vacations were the end all be all to vacationing. Boy were we wrong. Prepare to be hooked.

Thanks Janet. Great Merida dress by the way! If you all want to see a lady who can make the most gorgeous dresses in the world for her daughter then you should head over to her trip report. She also is an amazing photographer. Do yourself a favor and stop on over.

Now we just need you to get back to Disneyland and join us on the DL picture of the day thread on the community side of the Disneyland boards!
