Captain R{ck Harp ~ City Fire ~ City Harbor ~ Avalon Ange Nursing Service, and our wonderfulcaregiver, May Beltran Sincerely, AVALON BAY ACTIVITY REPORT FOR FEBURARY 2012 During February, Catalina was plagued with wind and even an earthquake that was centered just six miles east of Avalon. Seven small craft advisories and two gale warnings-were forecast with some beautiful winter weather in between. The first weekend of the month had calm seas and tem- peratures in the 60s bringing some most welcome boating visitors in- cluding a small group from Balboa Yacht Club. The next weekend was nice as well, starting out with extremely calm wind conditions. Fortunately, on Feb. 1 l, the wind picked up for the Bahia Corinthian Bogart Series race with the 18 boats beginning to arrive from Newport around 2 p.m. Horizon Yacht Club also visited that weekend with 13 boats. Membership in Horizon Yacht Club is limited to owners of "Blue Water Vessels," or boats that can safely cross the San Pedro Chan- nel to Catalina. Horizon members are frequent and welcome visitors to the Island. The first visit of the month for the "Inspiration" was plagued with rain and Southwest winds mea- sured up to 41 mph. The weather did not succeed in hampering the spirits of the pas- sengers who seemed to enjoy the "E Ticket" ride on the shore-boats to and from the cruise ship as much as the tours they took. Their next visit. Valentine's Day, was a much nicer day and appropriate on that day to visit the "Island of Romance." Weather and attendance were good this year for the 31st Annual Avalon Harbor Underwater Clean- up held on Saturday, Feb. 25. February 2012 stats are as follows: People aboard boats--I,792 Vessels Moored--448 Vessels Anchored 4 Lost/Found Reports--O/1 Accident ReportsO Average Temp, High 62 Average Temp.

My daughter and I were re- cently on vacation for seven days and we enjoyed our trip to Catalina very much. But the last couple of days my daughter was getting bored. Someone recommended Catali- na Kid Ventures so I checked it out. Great establishment! It was a safe, clean and very friendly environ- ment. The first day she went half day and loved it. The next morning she woke up and she wanted to go back to Kid Ventures, and she end- ed up staying all day. This was her first time away from me, yet she had no hesitation staying there. I would recommend Catalina Kid Ventures to anyone traveling- with children. While the kids are at the facility the adults get to en- joy themselves. It was a wonderful way to spend part of our vacation. Thank you Catalina Kid Ventures. Stephanie and Autumn Preston 2 i Friday, March 9, 2012 THE CATAUNA ISLANDER
