Spanish explorer Juan Rodriquez Cabrillo discovered the island in 1542,but the Native Americans Pimugnans had been there for 500 years.
60 years passed before a next visit from Europeans.A Spanish explorer Sebastian Vizcaino,re-discovered the island and re-named it Santa Catalina.(The Pimugnans didn’t care,and called their island Pimu.)
The island was once overrun with Russian and Aleut otter hunters from Alaska for fur hats that were the big thing in China.
Young George Shatto,in 1887 bought the island,developed,surveyed,enlarged it as a resort that became Avalon.
Shatto enlarged the wharf,built the Hotel Metropole and began selling town lots.
The name Avalon is from a Tennyson poem, “Idylls of the King” Dying King Arthur says that he would be going to Avalon,a beautiful island valley where he would heal himself of his grievous wound.

I'm a sunrise kinda guy, though I value and require large doses of sleep. My favorite days holding a camera are almost always at early dawns, watching the daybreak glow grow from a star prodded blackness and slowly, like an ember on the horizon, turn on the world.
