Actually it's only 22 miles, but Santa Catalina was awaiting for me. You know the old joke that life begins when the kids grow up and the dog dies?, well sadly Oscar the wonder dog died last week, and the kids are hopefully gone for good, so we are taking a spur of the moment trip to Catalina. I grew up in So. Cal. and I've never been here, and we got an incredible deal at the Wrigley Mansion so here we are. This is the view out one of our bedroom windows.
Apparently Calvin Coolidge slept in our room and I hope he was tall because you have to climb a ladder to get into the bed.
