Fact: Avalon’s golf course was first built in 1892, making it the oldest course in southern California.
We were up and moving at 0-dark:30 AM because we had to have breakfast and then played nine holes of golf.
Mary was up and ready to golf, but she had forgotten her proper golf dress. This picture is a 2014 photo taken in Catalina at the Avalon Ball weekend.
We headed to the Sand Trap, a gourmet restaurant located just below the men’s first hole tees.
To the links, and Mary remembered how to swing the club!
She scared the heck out of the squirrels; they ran and hid in the trees when they saw her coming. Little did they know the trees were not a safe space.
We did not see any of these little critters, and we were happy we didn’t/ Although, I would like to have a rattlesnake belt!
Off to the Bluewater Grill for dinner. We had great seats on the pier/patio and could watch the boats come and go!
Dr. Mary and Paul dressed for the 9’s. We had a wonderful dinner with the Zaitz and Ash’s. I tried to order ousters, but there was an “oyster monster” at the table!
Mike and Linda made the dinner entertaining. I love Mike’s jacket, and, surprisingly, it fits since he got it off a drunk living under a bridge on Beach Blvd.
We enjoyed all the silliness and friendship! Great times!
Top hat and tails, dressed to the 9’s.
We followed up and walked the mile to the Casino.
We danced for hours, making it around the room many times and watching the other period dress people. It was a fantastic evening.
After the dance, we took a cab home to the hotel and quickly stopped at Luau Larry’s for a nightcap!
