A Weekend On Catalina Island, California

For Kristian’s birthday I booked him a course to learn how to scuba dive. This also included a weekend diving on Catalina, which is an island just west of Long Beach, LA. As I didn’t have anything else planned for the weekend, I went along too.

Hello! Sorry it’s another late one for my weekly round up, this week so far has been non stop. Last week was pretty busy with a couple of trips down to LA, and the sunshine was back so that’s always good.  However I was a bit rubbish at taking photos so there aren’t many in this one!
