The Island of Romance!

WOW! I forgot to post about our wonderful mini-vacation on Santa Catalina Island. We were given the trip by Tony's former employer when he retired and didn't have a chance to go. So before it expired we decided we'd better do it right away! We decided to go Mon-Wed to avoid the possibility of not being able to schedule a room.
We stayed at the Snug Harbor Inn which is right on the bay. The water was maybe 10 yards from our front door. It was so wonderful. Our room was just fabulous! It included a fireplace and jetted bathtub. The staff brought us breakfast every morning - not just rolls either, the whole shebang! Then every afternoon Hors d'Oeuvres and Martinelli's were served in the lounge, and because we were so tired they brought it to our room. We actually slept so much, we didn't realize how very tired we were.
We rented a golf cart and drove all over the island. The weather was overcast when we first arrived but the next two days we were treated to warmth and sunshine, blue skies which made the water so lovely to behold. We found it hard to tear ourselves away.
We can hardly wait to go to Catalina again, sometime in the future - after we return from our mission. Something that really struck us while on the island was the similarity to the island of Cyprus. We kind of felt it was a preview of what we can expect to find when we arrive there. Even the weather is very similar. We are really thankful that we had this opportunity to get a foretaste of our mission digs!
