As the sunset and the moon rose over Catalina Island our day came closer and closer to an end. We decided we should eat something to tide us over on our ferry ride home. We searched for something small since neither of us were super hunger and came upon a little pizza shop, Original Antonio’s Pizzeria.
The place was actually really neat inside. It had pictures of all different old celebrities on the walls with their autographs and a huge bison head near the front entrance. I would have liked to sit inside and eat, maybe play a few songs on their table top jukeboxes, but my friend wanted some fresh air. We each got a slice of pizza for a little over $3, there were only two options cheese or pepperoni, and while it wasn’t the best pizza, I’ve had worse.
After we ate we headed over to our ferry. It was dark by the time we left and as we pulled away from the dock a pastor came and sat next to us. We spent half the trip having an inspiring talk with him and he just couldn’t be happier with his life. He’s one of those people that always sees the bright side of every situation and trusts that everything will work out just as it is supposed to when it is supposed to. His relationship with “God,” as he puts it, was just astonishing. He asks, he receives and he is extremely grateful for everything he has. It was a great way to end our trip, truly mind-opening.
