I decided to stay a bit longer in Catalina, especially since the day was so overcast here. No rain, but sure felt like it.

Santa Catalina Island is one of the four Southern Channel Islands and approximately 22 miles Southwest of Los Angeles. The Island is 22 miles in length (coincidence in the numbers, huh?) and encompasses nearly 75 square miles.

The Town of Avalon measures one square mile, so all is in walking distance. The houses are nestled around the harbor and follow upward along the mountainside. Since the town is petite, space is limited and the homes are very close together.

Nestled Homes is a scene in the late afternoon just after a misty, rainy day. The sun broke through and shone at a few spots where the rest was overcast. There were about two hours remaining before sunset, so time was limited to enjoy the rays.

Just a quick sunny thrill....
