Avalon Bay

Rain-pocolypse!!!

Wow!  It's been raining here in Austin so much that once the rain broke, downtown was a marina!  Just look at the pic below!  Ha!  Not really, but it sure seems like it.  We got something like 10 - 12 inches of rain today in like three hours.  It was what I like to call "rain-pocolypse"!  And it may not be done!  Time to build an arc and start marching animals two-by-two! 

Seriously though, be safe and pray for those who may be flooded!  Turn around, don't drown!!!

Today's Pic - Avalon Bay

OK, horrible jokes about the rain here in Austin aside, this shot is of Avalon Bay at Catalina Island off the coast of California!  Fun place to go for a quick something to do. If you do go, rent a golf cart and take the scenic route! That's how I got this shot here.  Lots of great views on the little roads in the hills around the bay. Fun and you'll be done in an hour!  Also, the building on the left in the entrance to the bay is known as the Catalina Casino.  It was once a thriving casino back in the late 20s and 30s, but now it seems to be a performing arts center and unless one goes to a show or something, the only way to see it is via tour guide.  We didn't have time to go there, but it might be fun.
