But we were really only 26 miles across the ocean from Los Angeles to Catalina! And we didn't know that there was such a posh, upscale, cool place until we checked into the Hotel Metropole. We'd always thought of Catalina as rinky-dink, so it was a shocker to find this place with what seemed to be a brand new rooms/building. The town itself is frozen in time, but on one weekend we saw a whale, seal, buffalo roaming on a trip to the interior of the island, a bald eagle, and a zillion wildflowers (I guess from all the rain). We will be back.
