Balboa Island, California (Beach Cottage Gardening)

My sister-in-law came for a visit and I suggested we take a quick day trip to Balboa Island, located in Newport Beach, CA.

This adorable cottage town has fun activities for families and children, including a ferry ride, a carousel, and an arcade.

And the endless rows of cottage houses, with the accompanying cottage gardens are stunning.

To add to the charm, the restaurants are casual and inviting.

It's the perfect place for a day trip and if you do go, let me know if you enjoyed yourself. We certainly had fun!

Those photos were nice to see, after living in winter snows for the past 6 or 7 months it's nice to see a little taste of the coming spring.
