Last days of summer: My Scrap Book

   From Thursday until Sunday afternoon, last week, I have been in Catalina Island. For my sister, Grace, who is going into 6th grade, it was her last four days of summer(not me though, I have another week :b). We had so much fun, and we made the most of the last few days of summer. Here are some pictures! :b

The streets were lined with golf carts instead of cars because it costs lots of money and takes tons of time to get a car shipped to the island. 

These are what the street signs looked like. Some of them say the name of stores on the particular street.

These are some beachy themed signs that I found in a store. Very cute!
Here is a picture from a store that does there own embroidery! It is stitching a picture of Catalina Island. It tells you how may minutes left to stitch and how many stitches have been done. I watched this thing stitch for five minutes and it is SO cool!
This is a picture of the Lloyd's ice cream parlor. It has been there for a long time and, in my opinion, has the best ice cream in town! My sister LOVES ice cream, so she took a silly picture with the giant ice cream sundae!
 All the boats parked in the water, with a nice sunset in the background.
 You can only just see the outline of some deer! I was kind of dark, so you can't see them too well...
 But you can see this one! It walked right up to me and licked some grass out of my hand!
The Casino(actually a movie theater) in the city we stayed in, Avalon.
This is my sister sitting in the arch of the Wrigley Memorial in Avalon. She is such a dare devil!
 There were many painted Bison in the city of Avalon because Catalina is home to many Bison! Sadly, I didn't see any real ones! :)
Here's another one!

   We left Catalina on Sunday, and afterwards, I was very tired! I always thought that was very strange because vacations, for the most part, are supposed to be relaxing! We did a little hiking, a lot of snorkeling and went parasailing to 800 feet!! We saw lots of Garibaldi and sting rays too! Overall, it was a get trip and it was so much fun to do it with my family!
   My sister has only gone back to school for two days, and I already miss having her around! Now, I don't have anyone to hang out with in the morning and I am a little board:(. So, enjoy your siblings during the summer, because when school starts, you will be very busy and won't have a lot of time to hang out with them.
  Enjoy the rest of your summer and have fun with your siblings! Thanks for reading!
