I found my love in Avalon beside the bay
I left my love in Avalon and sailed away
I dream of her and Avalon from dusk 'til dawn
And so I think I'll travel on to Avalon
Many Californians are very, very upset this morning with the news that Catalina Island is burning. For most people it is a day stop on a weekend cruise or the subject of a song with the wrong mileage. Even tourists who have been to California many times have not made the trip while the year round and summer residents are few since that requires access by your own boat or commercial boat or seaplane.
Many natives have never been there. It just exists somewhere off the coast. For those who have been it is a integral part of the history of California and a bit of mystique from which they will never recover ... their own private tropical isle
So we will be watching very closely in hopes the magic will be saved. Do try to take the time to read the history of the island in the link above.
Here is some additional fun information about Catalina Organ and buffalo
