Favourites: barbers and football

Back again in one of our favourite spots on the planet, Catalina Island. There’s a drought but no shortage of good community cheer. People have been welcoming Jim back by name, including Ric, the guy who gave us all a ride to the ferry in his golf cart in 2013! We’ve been away too long.


This first picture iis a look at what you do when there’s a serious drought and you’re committed to save every drop of grey water you can. That’s Jim with one of our favourite people, Lolo Saldana, who at 85 is still pulling a full week’s worth of hours at his barbershop. Rick saved up and got a haircut the day after we arrived and we caught up on all the Island news.


We’ve been taking multiple hikes every day, and there’s always some interesting spot to throw the football around. No one else should come here; we don’t want too many people to know about it!
