Anyway, arriving in Avalon was a treat. Palm trees, beautiful hillside houses, spanish tiles, cute shops and restaurants, men in thongs....WAIT! A man with a tiny pouch over his private is NOT a treat. I would advise that you prohibit thong-clad men from the island, as they distract from your beauty!
Catalina, I think your water activities rock! We had so many options - lounging on our raft in the marina (or on the sand), peddle boating, motor boating (haha), jet skiing, and kayaking. Unfortunately, your small, weak pals couldn't hang with the big dogs and had to stay behind while they went kayaking. I'm sorry, don't get offended! You really think I could kayak for 4 hours straight? Oh, right, I could have relaxed on the beach for a bit and then went for a swim? NT, Catalina! I don't go in cold water and I don't kayak for 4 hours, got it?! One hour? Definitely. Two? Probably not. I promise you, Cat, I wil be back and I will go jet skiing. I'm pretty disapointed in myself for not going for it last time. But hey, your peddle boats were awesome (aside from the greasy steering lever) and really gave me a great quad workout. Vacation and exercise - you're such a smart island.
I really had a great time. I hope you don't think I was disapointed in my weekend. Granted, I might do some things a little differently next time, but I'm definitely interested in coming back! Here's what I would like to do next time:
- jet ski
- rent Air Bud on VHS
- have a romantic dinner at the restaurant on the corner near Viva Vincentes!
- ride the buffalo
- rent a bicycle
- tour the backstreets and see whats on the other side of the island
- talk to locals
- lounge on the beach more
- sing kareoke
- rent a vacation cottage
Thanks again, Catalina. Bon Voyage!
