It was "shop small businesses day" and my daughter and I spent it on Balboa Island going from one cute shop to another. Just one adorable shop after another! Each establishment had its own look and theme along with some very unique shopping experiences. I especially enjoyed…
There is a nice downtown area with some cute shops where you can buy sweets, ice cream etc.The waterfront near the ferry is also nice. There are rest rooms near the ferry and boats offering whale watching etc. The ferry is also a great way to get to and from the island.
We rode the ferry over in the evening and then wandered the lovely neighborhood on our way to get a frozen banana. The area was beautiful!
A friend invited me to take a walk on a Sunday morning on the island. We went early started from the little commercial center. Had coffee and tea. Walked for an hour at round the residential area. Lovely place to see all the water front properties. Very enjoyable !
Have taught swimming on the Island for many years. We used to walk around, row around and paddle around the Island. Main Street is a real joy. There are many shops and restaurants there.
