If I were a rich man...

Okay, so now I'll have that song running through my head all day. Anyhow, if I were a rich man, we'd spend a lot of time here. We're on Catalina Island, having spent two days of our trip here. I'm sitting on the bed in the Bethany Glen room of the Inn on Mt. Ada, typing this as I look out across our balcony.

I'm enjoying a view of the sea, as I look back towards the California coast. From the balcony, in this mansion on the highest hill on Catalina, we can sit and enjoy that view, as well as a beautiful view of the town of Avalon, watching the boats come and go from the little harbor.

There's a light, cool breeze this morning, and the fireplace is going, adding just the right amount of heat to keep the room comfortable with the chill morning breeze blowing in. This is a wonderful place, and we will be back.

Wow. Spectacular setting. I am expecting some great photographs soon.

But what's this about Mr. Wrigley's naming Mt. Ada after his wife? What's the Freudian implication here now?

That sounds so beautiful. I'm so green with envy!
