Balboa Island is reached by crossing this adorable bridge lined with American flags waving in the breeze and red, white and purple flowers.
The houses that are one right after another are amazing. No two are similar and all have beautiful front areas filled with flowers and trees and then you see their umbrellas and tables and fire pits and wind chimes.
The landscaping was truly amazing. The flowers and trees and succulents that lined the streets and hills was so spectacular. We all stopped often to take in the incredible sights offered in the land of sunshine.
