Catalina Camping

Where have I been lately?
Richard and I took a well deserved and much need trip away for 4 days to Catalina Island, CA (about 30 miles off the southern CA coast). I just returned home today and in the spirit of our relaxing holiday, I will let the pictures do the story telling.

We boarded the Catalina Express Ferry (curiosity of my parents Christmas present!) and an hour later we arrived on the island

We hiked 2 miles up hill to our campsite carrying our packs. I almost died but it was worth it.

We stayed out Hermit Gulch Campground. It's only 2 miles outside of Avalon City.

I cooked outside, a first for me.

We had a simple meal of mushrooms, onions, and zucchini in a ginger soy sauce. Not too bad for my first attempt.

Richard made pancakes to snack on.

I can't have pancakes without a ton of syrup drizzled on top.

Tomorrow is back to work for both of us. A 3 day work week isn't too bad though!

That looks like such a fun time! I've never cooked vegan outside, since I haven't really camped or hiked far in a very long time. I love the veggie mix you cooked up, and the pancakes look so fluffy!
