After our ride in the Fuji blimp, we went to Catalina & passed out (from our non-drowsy Dramamine). I asked mary if I could draw a smiley face on her big toe. Surprisingly, she said, "SURE"!

Mary decides to break out her Speed Graphic for some 4x5 pix at Catalina.

Jones Beach

Mary & I went for a walk on the boardwalk at Jones Beach. Even though I hate the sand, I was so intrigued by the trash cans that we had to venture off our path.

there sure were a LOT of trash cans!!!

Kathy Houle joined us for a day of fun & sun at catalina. i'm not sure why she finds it necessary to pose like a pretzel when using her lensbaby 2.0!?! maybe i'm doing something wrong! this was shot with my lensbaby 2.0, but i wasn't all twisted up!

there's no smoking at Catalina Beach Club. shot with a lensbaby 2.0.

Kathy seems amused that "swim diapers are required"! shot with a lensbaby 2.0.
