AVALON--VACATION LAND m Dear Editor Islander:- Well, here I am again in Avalon-- high up on the hillside, gazing down upon one of the most charming bits of scenery along the Pacific coast. The spell of the Magic Isle is upon me. With the din of the traffic no longer ringing in my ears--all sounds of the steam cars and street cars hushed, and only tbe occasional purr of a motor car heard, I seem almost to be in an- other world. How refreshing to the jaded brain and tired body is a sojourn in Avalon! How ravishingly beautiful to the eye--the quiet town nestling at my feet, the mountains rising in ma- jesty all about me, and the azure sea spreading out so amply yonder, meet- ing the horizon in perfect blend. "In this information will en- all the world no trip like this"--and no place quite like Avalon. tgreatly, as we appreciate I knew Avalon back in the past, be- you have had much to | t during the winter strug- fore Mr. ~rigley had acquired the Is- land.
