on saturday, before the sun was even thinking about waking up, a. woke me up and filled me in on a little secret. we were heading on a surprise date. he had taken the liberty to plan a day trip, packed us a bag and told me to dress casually for lots of walking and kayaking.
as we headed north on the 5, after much anticipation, he filled me in on his plan. we were heading to catalina island.
the ferry ride, we hit a huge blanket of fog that socked us in for the remainder of the commute. when we arrived to avalon, the town was just waking up and the blanket of fog created a cold and cozy atmosphere throughout the sleepy town. we warmed up over breakfast and set off to explore.
rented paddle boards and set out for the sea. this is when i wish i had known where we were headed, because a waterproof camera would have been amazing! but alas, those few hours of still water, dolphins and seals, and the crystal clear depths of the sea will stay with us only in memories.
