We are leaving on March 1st for a quick trip to Southern California-Vancouver to LAX,-We arrive too late for transport to Santa Catalina so will stay on the Queen Mary on Sat nite , then helicopter over to Santa Catalina on Sunday morning (sounds decadent but there was a package special) We will stay on Santa Catalina Sunday night and then return to Long Beach late on Monday. Will fly home to SSI on Tuesday.This is the last flight of our Air Canada winter get away pass.Will provide more details later.
Arrived back from LA sans luggage on the 4th- Catalina was fun. Everything is concentrated in Avalon -about 2000 people now (and 20,000 in summer) We hiked up to backcountry-quite a climb and did tourist stuff. No private cars on the Island-residents all drive golf carts. Helicopter over was fun.
