The Island

12/05/2013

Balboa Island is less than ten minutes from my parents' house, so when I'm home we often grab a coffee and walk the big and small islands. We do it any time of year, but Christmastime is best, since most houses are decorated (there is an annual contest) and the streets look even more charming than usual. 

p.s. If you're an Arrested Development fan you might recognize the last photo.

Love seeing sailboats on the harbor, so relaxed, whereas they are sailing or not ;)

It's beautiful! I love how it looks like you can just touch the clouds. Also, so neat about the Banana Stand! I never knew it was a real thing!

Absolutely LOVE it. We live on the water--and something about it is absolutely gorgeous plus all the Christmas decorations! Awesome.

And a chocolate covered frozen banana?? I want one. Lol.

I've never heard of Balboa Island, but it looks so picturesque and pretty!

Beautiful photos. We just got back from Nantucket, and we miss their big Christmas Stroll by a weekend every year. :( I swear I am destined to live on an island someday (searching madly for that missing lottery ticket!).

There's always money in the banana stand!
