Island Time ~ Catalina, CA

To start off the summer a small group of us surprised our friend Aura for her birthday with a trip to Catalina Island off the coast of Los Angeles. Her boyfriend thought of the scheme and pulled it off beautifully. I was happy I was there for the ride because it was (probably) more fun for us to plan and wait and guess and wonder if she already knew. Here is a recap of our weekend together...

It all started at the Long Beach Catalina Express where we waited for Aura's arrival.

This island has real live pirates!
Matthew's uncle and aunt were such wonderful hosts
Make a wish!

Mimosas for breakfast with the best OJ around
Lithuanian style pancakes. My favorite!

Breakfast at Allyn's was scrumptious
