A walk around Balboa Island....

These past two weeks we have been finishing up our home on Balboa Island after it had a terrible flood last December. Here is it below ( first house, with black door ) all ready for those who wish to vacation on this charming little island. This was the house that my husband grew up in, during the summers and where we had our first date when I was 15 years old. And now we've been married 44 years!

One of the great things to do when you stay here is an evening walk around the island. It has kept it's eclectic charm and the flowers are all competing with themselves for our attention. And then, at the end of the walk, you have to indulge in a frozen banana, dipped in chocolate and sprinkles!

Balboa Island was first created around 1899 and has held it's charm every since.
Each house is different and that makes the evening walk such fun.

Come along with me..........on this Happy Fourth of July!!

It has been many years since I strolled the streets there. Quaint and eclectic. Balboa island is such a lovely place.
