Let’s Go Racin’ Boys!

Anchors Up!

This is an overview of Avalon Harbor – we were searching for the Chimes Tower and came across this stunning Vista. These moored vessels all pointing East seemed poised to race to Los Angeles, a short ~20 miles away with following seas.

One of the concoctions they sell in bars is called Buffalo Milk. After a bit of prodding, we discovered the story behind this potent elixir. The island has been home to a population of approximately 150 American Bison since 1924. Originally, fourteen bison were brought to the island for the filming of the movie The Vanishing American, though the scenes with the bison in them did not make it into the final cut of the film. Due to cost overruns, the film company decided to leave the bison on the island instead of bringing them back to the mainland.

  3. Found this through 🙂 What filter did you use exactly? And do you use Topaz often? I’ve only been toying with the adjust. What combinations of Topaz would you recommend?
