Several years ago Margot and I packed our suitcases
and took the boat from
Long Beach to Catalina to spend a long weekend.
We stayed at a delightful little B&B a few blocks from the harbour.
One of the things we loved most was all the tile work,
The above graces the facade of the famous casino and
the others are found on the walk way from the harbour to the casino.
Of course we found a bit of time to
go shopping while we were there.
This gorgeous and generously sized blue bowl,
which we love to fill with fresh vegetables
and fruit from our local farmers' market,
and two beautiful examples of Catalina tiles -
using the old patterns and colours.
If you live within a 5 hour radius of Long Beach -
Catalina makes the perfect 3-4 day vacation.
What are you waiting for?
