Like most of my "vacations" these days, this trip has a dual purpose. One, it's a time when I can relax and enjoy a fun place in the company of a good friend and, secondly, it will be research for a new book. I've decided to put part of the 2nd Granny Apples novel on Catalina. In fact, the book opens in November on the beach in Avalon.
Tidbits about Catalina - There are buffalo on the island, left there from a movie shoot years ago; ghosts supposedly haunt the Casino building; Natalie Wood drowned while visiting Catalina Thanksgiving Weekend 1981; the Chicago Cubs used the island for spring training 1921-1951;
Everyone have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!
