Santa Catalina is Waitin' for Me...

At the museum in Avalon, we learned that Catalina Island is known for the decorative tiles made there. This squirrel tile is one of many decorations on the wall leading to the casino, which is not a gambling casino. Here the word casino is used in the original sense of a place of entertainment.
We had a nice lunch at one of the restaurants overlooking the harbor. Then we wandered among the shops, many of which cater to tourists. We visited a few galleries including the Ruth Mayer Gallery, where we were greeted by the artist's son.
