Catalina Island Series – Airport in the Sky – “The airport originally opened as Buffalo Springs Airport in the spring of 1941. It was built by the Wrigley family of Chicago, who owned most of the island under the Santa Catalina Island Company, by leveling off the top of a hill. Prior to this, only seaplanes landed at Hamilton Cove Seaplane Base, just north of Avalon. The Wrigleys kept a DC-3 in the large hangar there.”
Catalina Island Series – Shark Harbor – “Shark Harbor is a small beach on the southwest side of Catalina Island. Shark Harbor is adjacent to the popular beach at Little Harbor Campground. These two beaches are separated by a rock called the “whale tail” which looks like a whale’s tail from above. People walk out on this rock to take pictures of both beaches.”
