Defitnatly not fat free, but it is so good.

So was it $40 per hour and you payed for 2 hours totaling $80. $40 deposit was the deposit which was refunded.

Skiboy - I also got the Pay for 2 get 3 hours special. $40 sounds about right (once I got my deposit back). Sherry E put me on to it and it is the spot immediately to the left once you get off the Catalina Express ferry/flyer. From memory, Sherry said that they do book out early so we pretty much caught the first boat out.

Depending on how much stopping you do, you may or may not need the full 3 hours. We stopped at Wrigley Gardens and one of the local enviro museums so we ended up using all 3 hours.

The other thing to consider is make sure you plan out the afternoon activities as well. By the time we came back to Avalon, we had decided we wanted to do the zipline but it was already all booked out for the day. On hindsight, we should have booked the afternoon activity AFTER we got the golf cart.

It was cold soup. They have other cold soups as well.

She is right, you may not need the full 3 hours. Depending on how much you want to keep driving and seeing. There is enough to see and do even without the golf cart. Unfortunately, the other half of the island you couldnt drive due to a rock slide. But you certainly have quite a bit of time to fit in a few things.

We finally arrived in Ensanada, got up early as I did have an excursion. We had some breakfast at the buffet.





It was a beautiful day.





I should have taken the shot from the side, the size of this flag is I think 3 football fields.



While waiting for my excursion, I saw foxesden1, who was on the same excursion. We sat there waiting for the guide to let us know when we were ready to leave. After about 20 minutes the guide came back and said they were looking for us!

Whoops!. I guess we held the bus up.

We headed on our way and made a few stops nothing worthy of pictures anyway. So after the bus driver making a few speaches were finally on our short drive to the restuarant. The name of it is Mango Mango.

I will show the food we made, it is really not a cooking class. But you made your own salsa. For the most part it was good up until the tostada. Blech!

This was the chef for the restarant cant remember his name









This was the salsa with avacodo, it was very good.






Chicken echilada also good.

Now this tostada, sorry but he used oregeno on the thing and that was horrible, no one liked it. Not a good way to end your cooking class.





This whole process was about an hour. The guide said we had about an hour and a half to do some shopping. Well foxesden1 and I went together. I really didnt take pics. Dont really know why. Half way down the shopping trip, we ran into Chris and he was with the other couple that we have dinner with at our table every night. Well Foxesden1 said to finish with my husband. So I walked back to the restaurant and let the guide know I would continue and not be back on the bus. She thanked me for letting her know. We walked back to an area to catch the bus to the port. It cost $1.00 dollar to ride.

I bought a purple beaded necklace for a dollar. They have people everywhere selling you stuff. The children are always grabbing you to buy things. The bus drivers get to know the locals. When the bus was ready to leave, one local was on the bus continuing to sell. After so far he stopped and let the guy off. We got back to the pier.





I didnt get a chance to look in the port shopping area, so I looked around there and bought a bottle of vanilla.

We told the other couple we would meet them in the library to continue our monopoly game. It was a good thing we kept the game, as the library was closed for a private function. So we had to find a new place to go play our game.

We eneded up at the lido deck inside, where the buffet was. We played until it was time for dinner.

I had so much food I was not hungry, but I did not want to disappoint the waiter, so I ate a few bites and let it go at that.

But, couldnt pass up dessert





No pics from dinner on as we played monopoly the rest of the night till bedtime....

Upnext our final day at sea..

Great food porn. Which one of you had the burger for breakfast? DH would approve. The other breakfast looked amazing. Yay to more monopoly.

Love the Catalina house. It doesn't sound like the golf carts have gone up too much since we went 6 years ago, I think we paid around $60 back then.

That looks like a nice day. I'm thinking of a possible cooking class excursion if we go on a cruise (besides, it's about the only HA one available).

Other than the zipline, this sounds like what we did when we went to Catalina, but I think that was 12 years ago...

I like the cooking classes. There is alot to do in Catalina. Its just a matter of choosing what to do in that time your there.

Deep fried egg looks interesting. I wonder if they could make them soft boiled?


Tapas style dinner looked really good. Mmmm Chocolate.

Nice food porn. Looks like you had a nice day in Ensenade despite the oregano.
