I had the opportunity to go on a last minute trip to Catalina Island this weekend. It was my first time watching the Water Ski races from the other side of the Channel and that was really exciting. It's cool to see the water skier's come in and make that turn around the big orange balloon in the sky in front of Avalon. Our family friend was in second place when he came to make that one and only turn half way during the race and by the time he got back to the finish line it was like his driver had a Nitrous Oxide System because his boat accelerated and he came in first neck and neck with his competitor. It was a good race. You can see the finish on You Tube.
On this trip to the Island, I saw a whole new slew of cool things from Leopard sharks to large groups of seals, flying fish, and new places to hike. I got to sleep on a boat. I've always wanted to do that. I think I might want to invest in a sail boat now. Maybe I'll even sail the world like Laura Dekker. If you don't know who that is then I suggest you watch the documentary about her 2 year journey sailing across the world by herself when she was just 14 years old. Its called Maidentrip.
In love with my new wallet that I scored from the Michael Kors outlet at the State Line on the way to Las Vegas last weekend. I was in need of a new wallet since I was carrying around an old Betsey Johnson one from 5 years ago. I also picked up this dress from the thrift shop. Denim is always a good idea and especially if there is a floral print on it. "Florals for Spring, groundbreaking" - Devil Wears Prada.
Sometimes you just have to throw on some Terry Cloth and call it a day. This Billabong cardigan is cute, casual, and perfect for drying off after coming out of the water. We went on a paddle this morning and I jumped in. It felt really refreshing. I can't believe it's December and I'm able to jump in without a wet suit. I love California.
