There was a poker run out here last summer. I didn't enter because I basically forgot about it until my friend Chris called the night before the run. He was going over to Catalina early to watch in his boat at the Avalon card stop. I definitely wanted to see it, and see all the hardware.
I sat outside Queens Gate watching, took a bunch of pictures and watched all the boats approaching the start. When they went off, I watched em all go by ( took more pictures ) and after they were all past, I headed for the island to meet up with Chris in his boat for the afternoon. I was running behind them most of the way, but I was faster than some of the stragglers. I wanted to get more pictures at the 1st card-stop, and watch the leaders heading out the next leg, so I was making time as best I could. I found Chris in his boat, we watched the turn, and headed into Avalon for lunch.
Later I returned to Long Beach and cruised around the docks checkin out the boats. Never moored my boat.
Am I a thief, or outta line ? ? ? . . . seriously. I'd like to know.
