Twenty Six Miles Across the Sea...

Actually, from Marina Del Rey, it was more like 33 miles, but whatever. We're here in Catalina - on a mooring in Isthmus Harbor. It's been a little cloudy, and even drizzly, but it's really quite beautiful. Last night:





































This afternoon, there was a yellow submarine moored behind us. Seriously. I think it's probably related to the USC facility on the island.

We had lunch in the little bar in Two Harbors, then went for a walk on the hill behind the anchorage.





























This is the next harbor over - Cherry Cove. Pretty, but there's nothing there but a yacht club, and it didn't look like it was open.
















The road we were walking along - this is looking toward the other side of Two Harbors toward Catalina Harbor on the s/w side of the island:

















The island looks to be none too stable, geologically speaking. This is a large chunk of land that has separated from the ground behind it and slid.









Tomorrow, we're heading to Avalon, on the other end of the island.
