On the Peninsula

Recently, taking advantage of a wonderful break from the storms we’ve had, I drove to Balboa Island and rode the ferry to the Balboa Peninsula. I wandered a few blocks and reached the sand. A really large berm had been built up by whichever government department is in charge of such things. I’m sure the […]

Newport Beach at Sunset

End of the weekend, I drove down to Newport Beach Peninsula yesterday evening for a quick stroll on the beach. Luckily people had started leaving and I found a parking spot. It had been a prime Southern California almost-summer day and crowds were out in force. I watched the sun slowly set and some really […]

2017 Washed Away

(4 photos) 2017 is behind us, inscribed in the history books. For me and my family, it was a fabulous, very busy year, with two weddings, one in May and the other just a few weeks ago. Health and happiness were generally in good order throughout the year. One sad note, though, was the passing […]

Newport Beach, Last Day 2016

(15 photos) December 31 2016 was a rainy day in Southern California, a nice end to a mostly miserable year. Personally, I enjoy overcast, chilly days at the beach, so when the rain took a pause, I hopped in my little truck and headed to Balboa Island. I parked and walked onto the ferry for a […]

2016 Bye Bye

I quickly wrote in the sand at Newport Beach this afternoon, and then, as with the year, it was gone. Wishing a Happy New Year and Everything Good for 2017! ~SueBee

Seaside Remnant

I took this picture with my iPhone last Friday evening while wandering along the sand at Newport Beach, before meeting a friend from high school for dinner. I’m not sure what the wooden structure had been when in good condition. It was quite close to the pier, so maybe it had been used to tie up boats. […]

Reflection in the Harbor

Photo taken at Newport Beach Harbor while on a holiday cruise with my co-workers. The building appears to be a restaurant, although some of the homes water-side are equally large! ~SueBee

Rat Pack Tribute at Lido

Last Friday after work, and after dinner at the Crab Cooker, I attended a concert at the Lido Theatre in Newport Beach. When it opened in 1938, the Lido was a movie theater. These days, it’s used for live concerts and occasional special showing movies. I arrived early and felt lucky to get a front row seat! On stage was a […]

Eat Here! The Crab Cooker

Our blog hasn’t featured a restaurant recommendation in ages, so it’s high time we do one again. This past Friday after work, and before the concert I would be attending, I treated myself to dinner at the Crab Cooker seafood restaurant in Newport Beach. My dad used to take our family there when I was a teenager, and I hadn’t been in […]

Today’s Sunset at Newport Beach

As I left the office today, worn out from a long workweek, I decided on a drive to Balboa Island, the opposite direction of my home in Orange. I crossed the bridge to the island, parked my little truck, walked to the ferry, hopped on, paid the $1.00 fee, rode over to Newport Beach Peninsula, and meandered down to the beach. The air […]

SueBee as Tour Guide

My niece and her 5 year old son are visiting America for the first time, coming from a very small farm village in Northern Germany. They first stayed with friends in Alamogordo, New Mexico, for two weeks, then flew to LAX where my oldest daughter, Angelika, picked them up. They stayed with her for a few days, then […]

Cooling off at Balboa Island

I made the traffic-free 25 minute drive to Balboa Island late yesterday afternoon; the beach was calling me! I parked at a shopping center on Bayside Drive at Jamboree, and walked over the bridge onto the island. I always find that’s the best solution to the crowds and lack of parking spots on the island […]

“Fearless”

Courage, guts, and a “you won’t beat me” attitude came to my mind while watching this seagull hold his ground (sand) as a “giant” wave loomed behind him, the first of several that he outsmarted. Yeah, maybe he was clever enough, or had experience enough, to know where the wave would crash and that he’d be safe, […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
