Early Morning Walk, Breakfast And Golf (Page Six)
Bob and Paul are the early risers... Breakfast #1 at 6:30
Paul got the worm this morning
It was a ghost town
Did You Know? - A ghost town is an abandoned village, town or city, usually one which contains substantial visible remains. A town often becomes a ghost town because the economic activity that supported it has failed, or due to natural or human-caused disasters such as floods, government actions, uncontrolled lawlessness, war, or nuclear disasters.
Even the office was closed!
Paul wanted to toot a horn so bad but alas could not fine one!
See the moon?
Lots of sleeping going on in there....
The lights and layers of fog and clouds weres amazing
The sun is starting to come up
The patio/sun roof is so quiet... We will take care of that a little later
It is now 6:30 am
Looked for a cow jumping over the moon... Did see a buffalo
Our restaurant looked like it recovered from our visit
It was closed but Paul decided to walk around the back
Our spot from last night was still cooling down
The casino will come alive tonight
Onward down the street!
A street sweeper, two pigeons and me!
Old Post Cards Were In A Store Window
One of the shops had some postcards in the window
In the 1920's it took three hours or more to make the voyage
We prefer the catamaran
Suits, hats... It must have been quite an interesting time
Catalina speed boats
Did You Know? - Al Bombard designed and built the "Miss Catalina" series of six boats to an odd length of 29 feet, 11 inches for a specific reason. Back in the day, the US Coast Guard regulations required all passenger-carrying vessels 30 feet and over to be inspected and certified, so Bombard and the Catalina Speedboat Company built the boats one inch shorter.
When it was designed and built during the First World War, the twelve-cylinder Liberty Aircraft engine was ahead of it's time; but by 1938, when "Miss Catalina V" was launched, these venerable power plants had proven a little shaky. Legend suggests that Al Bombard, who served his apprenticeship with Liberty Motors Experimental Service, was concerned as much with practical reliability as romance, and (Catalina Speedboat Co) kept three Liberty engines in reserve, overhauled and ready to go, for every engine currently in service. The Liberty in "Miss Catalina V" holds 10 gallons of oil, burns approximately half a gallon of oil an hour, and blazes through 30 gallons of gasoline an hour.
To The Pier
The pier was pretty empty
See the seal in the water... He was having fun with friends
He swam around all the boats in the harbor
Never knew they could talk.... Or was it a left over from the "Dirty Shirleys"?
"Hey... Get out of here... You are scaring the fish!"
They had a weather station on the side of the building
Inside a weather-proof window
Where we used to go early on Saturday morning...
Is no more....
Rumor has it that it is going to be a "high end" clothing store"
Bob and Paul dined at the Pancake House
Alert Alert... The Girls Are Up... Time For Breakfast #2
The golf gang walked to the Sandtrap
Did You Know? - Roberto and Celia Tejeda have been welcoming their friends, family and Island visitors to their Catalina Island establishments for the past 25 years. With attention to value, great food and a welcoming atmosphere, the Tejedas have built the Sandtrap into a place where local school children, families, visitors and community can gather daily. We welcome families, pets and large parties to share our slice of paradise. We encourage you to drop by and experience a Catalina Tradition at the Sandtrap!
