balboa island is a favorite! everytime we are visiting our daughter, we always go for a nice leisure walk, enjoy the scenery and join the vibrant yet relaxed pulse of this quaint island. and not to miss a wholesome treat of frozen bananas.
this time, we tried differently. pia and i took the ferry to newport harbor, rented a duffy electric boat and cruised around balboa island. the water was calm and shimmering blue under the clear cali skies.
it was a gorgeous afternoon and the boat ride was smooth and relaxed. we saw balboa island from a different perspective offering some of the most luxurious and elegant waterfront houses, charming boats and chic yachts. but most of all, pia and i had a wonderful time. being together was so precious, am so grateful for each of us and the gift of quality time.
