Catalina Island: Part 3

The best part of our weekend getaway to Catalina was how relaxing it was. We didn't check our emails, voicemails, or texts during our time there. When we have a staycation, we can't help but run a few errands, finish chores, and stay connected to our phones. It was nice to be free and just enjoy long strolls along the beach, as cheesy as that sounds!

Tiles of bison (a non-native but charismatic Catalina Island bison herd has existed for nearly a century).

Such cute homes! I love the color choices.

Another cute home.

    Love the cute wooden beach homes! Is Catalina island
    based on a cat or something o: Xx

    1. Haha, I don't think Catalina Island is based on a cat, but it would be cute if it was! Leroy (the cat they made a statue of) was a small town celebrity. He was loved by the people of Catalina Island and died at the age of 18 in 1989.
