Saturday
Paul got the worm this morning

Saturday
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!

Saturday
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

Saturday
The pier was pretty empty

See the seal in the water... He was having fun with friends

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!
