I should be too excited to write this post about Catalina Island as it was my first ever experience on an Island, but somehow the excitement it gone, in part because of my procrastination and in part I had high hopes of what I would be experiencing at an Island.
The photos are up at my photoblog here but this time I had uploaded it using the exif data so all the photos are now in the past and does not appear on the front page. I apologize for this. Hope you would still enjoy the images.
Regarding the trip, as I said the feeling has worn off as this was three months back, but I remember some things which I would like to still write about. The first thing still clear is the boat ride from the mainland to the Island, which was the best part of the whole journey. Other thing which made our trip was the small little things that was pain inflicted by people and god which actually made our trip a memorable one. Things like paying $77 extra as we were eight people instead of seven and the van could legally take only seven, like loosing our way to the campsite and enjoying the night hike, like waiting for the bus for over an hour on our way back, like running half a mile for the shower after a dip in the sea, and knowing that its a paid shower and we did not get money and many other amusing things.
Regarding the joy I should be having as it was my first Island trip, well I think this Island was too big to give me a feel of an one. I had pictured Island to be one small cap of land with one tree on the top from where you can see water on all four sides 😉
