First Day of Summer Fun!

A fun day at Balboa Island!
We couldn't have had a more perfect day!
Jaclyn, our little beach bunny was busy building sand castles!
 Jimmy splashing in the waves and Jaclyn being a little hesitant!
A photo of the Balboa Pavilion from the early 1900's. 
Today this well-known landmark is a restaurant and a fun place to catch a cruise to Catalina!
Balboa Island is also a great place to have a Balboa bar or frozen banana!
A Balboa bar is a vanilla ice cream bar covered with chocolate and/or nuts and sprinkles! Yum!
There's lots of neat vintage signs, too!
The Balboa pier with Ruby's Restaurant at the end.
Ruby's is such a fun place to eat! The menu is 1950's style hamburgers, fries, milk shakes and even vanilla, cherry or chocolate coke! We watched the dolphins swimming by, too! What a fun day to start the summer!


Blessings,

Janet- What a wonderful way to start your Summer. I think someone did a post on the Balboa Banana place yesterday...the frozen bananas with chocolate and whatever you want on them? Same Balboa? xo Diana

Hi Janet,
I can't believe I've never heard of Balboa Island. And I've lived in Cali all my life :-) Just found out it's only about 1 hour and a half from where I live...Looks like a fun place to visit. Perfect summer time vacation spot. Thanks for sharing...Oh, by the way, I just came across your blog and I can't wait to look around some more. Nice to meet you. Have a wonderful weekend.

Blessings,

We love Balboa Janet! We went down to Newport about a week and a half ago, and it was cloudy and cold. Looks like you hit it on a wonderful sunny day :)
Blessings,
Marcia
