Much to my delight I was invited to be a part of the annual Las Caballeras expedition to Santa Catalina Island. 65 equestrienne women loaded up their animals in Palos Verdes Estates and sent them off across the channel to arrive at a staging area and await us.
64 horses and mighty Tobe, we had a big responsibility being the only mule team!
This is a slight departure from the previous format of the blog, because I didn't map the 22 mile sea voyage. No ears to look through.

And there, safe and sound, was my fabulous mule. Cool calm and collected on a highline, under a eucalyptus tree, waiting for me to tell him where we were going next.
