Catalina: Punk Rock Island
May 29, 2009
And just why is Catalina known as Punk Rock Island??? Well, I suppose it’s mainly because this is supposed to be a mean ol punk rock blog and yet I don’t have anything very punk to write about. Let’s face it, the gigs have been scarce lately, so we have to reach a little here for the Punk content that keeps us in the thousands of hits per hour in the PR community. Perhaps you recall our recent post on Picorino Romano: The Punkest of all Cheeses!
See what I mean? This is the internet, people, and from now on whenever some poor fool Googles punkest cheese, well, you know where the dollars are gonna flow!!
Perhaps you’ve never been to that little burg we call Avalon, just a scant 29 miles offshore. Let us take you there now, and give you a few handy tips on transportation, lodging and eating establishments.
Dawn broke clear and calm as we loaded the venerable California Sun with provisions…..
The slow float out of the harbor was smooth and quiet. Yes…..maybe too quiet, hmmm? Little did we know the raging winds that were whipping up the channel as we cracked the first beer of the day.
Soon enough we were in the thick of things, blue water washing over the bow. It was like The Perfect Storm out there, except without the facial hair and bad New England accents. We actually spilled half of the hummus dip on deck, that’s just how bad it got….
Luckliy, the Cali Sun stayed true and strong, and we were soon moored safely in Avalon Harbor.
Now you’re there on the island, safe and dry. Let the following photos take you there, as we explore the many activities and fascinating sights Catalina has to offer–Enjoy!
