In the early 60s I took a road trip to California with my Parents and went on a tour boat to Catalina Island (where this photo was snapped). Daddy had told me for years about growing up in LA and going over to Catalina to ride horses, swim and fish. I wanted to see a part of his childhood through my eyes. I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with Avalon, nor for years having daydreams of living there, escaping the pitfalls of teenage life and the woes of the world around me. Avalon was a setting out of a Romantic novel with the arc of the bay circling swirling around the town. So many years ago and yet my heart feels like it was only yesterday.
