Beautiful Catalina Island Pictures

By
Home Inspector with Pillar To Post Professional Home Inspection

Formally known as Santa Catalina Island, but most just call it Catalina around here in Southern California.  It is one of my most favorite places.  I took these pictures and thought I'd share them with everyone.  Just posting this blog makes me want to go back.  I'm not a "photographer" but I love taking pictures.  I hope you enjoy them.

Been a very long time since I have been there but I do miss it. Sharks cove (west side of the island) is where we would camp and hike for a week or so. The best part for me though was the boat ride over there. Just standing at the bow of the ship watching everything was a blast!

Charles, thanks for stopping by. I love the boat ride too.  They're a lot different from when I went as a kid.  These new boats are fast and smooth.

Sigh......  Last time I was there, maybe 4 years ago?  Dolphins were jumping along side the ferry going out.  My wife and I kayaked to a beach, the gardens were great.

Thanks for sharing my memory - that I'd forgotten.  I'm sending this to my wife, we could use a little romance!!!

Your photos are fantastic.  I have never been there, but I just put it on my list of places to go.  Very Scenic.  Thanks for sharing.

Joseph,

Great photos and I love the buffalo.  I have never been to California but from your photo's I see that it is beautiful.

Thanks for commenting everyone.  As I said, Catalina Island is one of my most favorite places.  Just looking at the pictures again makes me want to go back.

It's been too long since I have taken the trek across the bay.  Have been wanting to go over to Catalina for some time now, going to have to make that happen. 

I am a terror behind the wheel of those golf carts, lol.

I fish Catalina at least 5 times a year.  I hardly ever see it from the land side of things so thanks for the pictures.

Laurie, thanks for the laugh, I've never rented a golf cart over there.  I'll have to try it some time.

Aaron & Mindy, I've never fished over there.  How is it and what do you usually catch?

For some reason, i love the pictures of a bay with hill/mountains and you can see the houses between the trees.  I'm talking about the first picture... it just gives me the warm and fuzzy feelings, and it displays the size of the area very well...

Nice pictures...

Met, thanks, that's my favorite too.  It was my computer wallpaper for a while.
