Catalina Island is one of my favorite places and we went for my birthday this year! We did a couple things we hadn’t done before – we rented a golf cart in Avalon and did a two hour golf cart tour around Avalon. The sights were amazing and it was great to see things that […]Read more "Catalina Island Birthday Celebration"
After Mike and I went to see the foxes, we decided to go check out the wildflower bloom in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. It definitely did not disappoint!

Back in February, Mike and I went to the JAB Canid Education and Conservation Center (JABCECC) to meet and learn about foxes.

We had done a jeep tour before on the island, but it had been years ago, so we decided to do it again! There is a herd of buffalo that lives on the island and the last time we did a jeep tour, we saw a couple, but they were far away. This time, we […]Read more "Catalina Island – Jeep Tour"
For my birthday this year, we went over to Catalina Island to see the Chihuly Exhibit at the Catalina Island Museum.
