City of Avalon

The city of Avalon on Catalina Island, 28 miles off shore in southern CA. This was the view looking out from the area of photo #3. 

Dance hall/ movie house from the big band era

Dance hall & movie theater built by chewing gum magnate, Wrigley,  during the big band era... frequented by the Hollywood stars and wealthy southern Californians of the day.

Thanks, Joe. No, it was just a day trip. The island is only about 20 miles off shore from us. It's visible from land.

At first I thought this was a Mediterranean village.
Interesting building ,dancing to the big bands' music I thought was a lot more romantic era than the disco "music" now.

Nice shots Jacki, but from the looks of things, a little rich for my blood. I hope you had fun.
