Family Vacation: Laguna Beach and Balboa Island

Laguna Beach

We played tourists on Tuesday and walked around, Balboa Island and Laguna Beach.  I had been to Laguna Beach before when I was in high school, but I loved being there again. Even if the weather was cold (60 degrees) and windy.  

I was watching for the waves

And then I was soaked anyway

Our favorite store in Laguna Beach was Tuvalu: a cute home decor store with great ideas for wedding and housewarming gifts. We however, only bought things for ourselves ;)

Newport Beach Marina

After grabbing lunch at a Market/Deli in Balboa we picked up a Duffy boat to tour around the marina.  We rented our Duffy from this rental place and had 2 hours to drive the boat around the marina.  They were very prompt, we even showed up early and they had us on the boat in minutes, it was pre-season though .

Ryan, gave us the quick run through of how to turn on the boat, and where we could and couldn't drive the boat. We may have been turned around for a little bit, but that wasn't Ryan's fault ;)

With the wind being so strong we thought the Duffy boat would be a bust, but luckily they have plastic "walls" we zipped up.

We found some great houses, when we win the lotto we're ready to go!
