My lovely friend told me I had to blog about this incredibly romantic spot off the coast of California, a ferry ride away from Hollywood. The island is famous for beautiful beaches, underwater beauty, wildlife and nature reserves.
Catalina is known as the ‘Island of Romance’ and old school crooners like Tony Martin immortalised it in a song. There’s even a place called ‘Lover’s Cove’! Adding to it’s dreamy quality it was a 1930’s Hollywood heydey glamour getaway for actors like Clark Gable. Marilyn Monroe once lived on Catalina as well.
Last month, my friend was on holiday with her boyfriend who planned the perfect proposal… after taking a tour of Catalina Island, he found a picturesque spot to watch the sunset and waited until the other tourists had left them on their own… then got down on bended knee!
Thanks Teresa and Mark for sharing this with everyone!! xx
