Newport Beach

Wednesday, May 13, 2009



I live about 40 minutes from a number California beaches, a shorter distance than what it takes for me to get to work everyday, yet before this weekend I hadn’t seen an ocean since I visited New York over a year ago. I forget how much I like the beach and its tides until I'm there; such calmness in staring at something so grand...



The Ferris wheel at the Balboa Peninsula Pier.



Painted shells, cute California kitsch! Sounds like a poem doesn't it?



We wanted to rent a boat but not everyone felt up to the adventure, I think the sign might've scared them.



My lovely sister Anna, I really liked her hat...





Scary Tsunami sign...



Place for Taffy.



A little pale... :)



¡Besos!

Brilliant pictures. I love seeing summer through particularly creative and talented bloggers' eyes!

If I had laid eyes on those painted novely seashells, I fear I would have come home with a purse-full of them! I love them so much!

All of these photos are wonderful individulally and as a set - so evocative! They make me long for summer, for heat and for happy go lucky holidays! Thank you so much Gabbi for the mini vacation!

I feel the same whenever we visit a beach. Even thought there is one a mere 30min drive it escapes our attention because believe it or not thats too far :( To walk anyway. The weather there looks sooo lovely! I'm missing Summer so much :(

Been a while. Hope you've beem well babe
