Catalina Island

Hey Guys!

Not only did The Beard and I go to Disneyland last weekend, we also went to Catalina to see my parents one last time before moving. No I didn't grow up on Catalina. My parents moved there after I left. Bummer right? Well it was gorgeous weather last weekend so we had a blast.

{{{This is the cove my parents live in.}}}

{{{That is their house.}}}

{{{Here's a 180 view of their front deck. Thanks Photomerge!}}}

{{{During the afternoon there was a group of kids snorkeling by the the jetty. You can see them closer to shore, by the rocks. Then this seal came and started swimming around pretty dang close to them, see him circled in yellow? So cool!}}}

Sorry these next photos are so terrible but I had to take them inside at night. For our birthdays my dad had this special dinner prepared for us by his friend/world famous chef! It was so awesome. The meal was French themed so we had that crazy awesome looking "salad", then lamb with mashed chic peas, then dessert. Dessert was handmade churros stacked like a log cabin with cinnamon buttercream layers in between toped with chocolate and handmade pure raspberry sauce. HEAVEN. This was the second time we've got to have a special meal prepared by this chef, and let me tell you... it's been the best food I've ever eaten. 

More photos of our adventures this last weekend coming soon!



  1. Oh my wow!! I want to live there! (I know I already told you on IG, haha)

  2. DUDE! Catalina?! I live in So Cal! In fact, I live in SEAL BEACH! Where do you live?! So awesome. xoxo

  3. So, kind of as a side note... if your parents are looking, I'm putting myself up for adoption. And I'm willing to relocate since you're going all east coast on them. I can sweeten the deal with grandkids, too.

    loved the pics.

  4. Gorgeous pictures. I love visiting Catalina. And how cool that your parents live there!
