Avalon, Catalina Island
I found some more pics from several other places that are truly amazing to visit in California. Another trip one can take is out of Dana Point in Southern California to the Catalina Island. Spend a day or two in the city of Avalon....
Keep your eyes open on the waters to catch some amazing sights of marine life!!
Did you know these guys glowed green in the dark because of a bioluminescent plankton?
Our vessel for the day
My friend Kristen....what an amazing day!!
We practiced putting sails up and down off the coast.
About the plants....thick succulent juicy plants grow around the cliffs similiar to the ice plant. These are plants that can tolerate the salty air, wind, and sandy(or rocky conditions). These plants do well in Tucson, but only in planters and also protected from our winter frosts. They need plenty of sun:) See example below..
To make many of these beautiful plants....snip an end off and stick it in the dirt...that's how easy they grow:) Happy Adventures!!
