Today, Audrey & I decided we should do something fun, one of our day trips (what we do best). We chose Balboa Island! We took Callan as well (because she makes every day trip 10X better OF COURSE). We started at Balboa Funzone, too bad for us, Cal was a couple inches shy of being able to ride the rides…but she could go on the ferris wheel! Cal is pretty fearless, we went on the ferris wheel, I was actually a little scared, but Cal was totally fine and liked when we stopped at the top and were overlooking the water and the rest of the funzone! After we got off the ferris wheel we decided to go on the ferry over to the island, we got on to the island and to be honest, I was a little confused on where everything was! I had only been to Balboa Island once before and I just remembered getting off the ferry and being on the street with all the restaurants and shops but that’s not how it’s set up LOL we had to walk about a half a mile (walking through super cute streets and beautiful houses) and then we got there and I was like “This is what I remembered!”. We walked around the shops, ate at a local Mexican restaurant and then got frozen bananas, OF COURSE (you can’t go to Balboa and not get a frozen chocolate covered banana). After that, we walked on the boardwalk until we found a nice area with sand so Callan could play! We hungout on the beach for about an hour so Cal could get her beach time in (she would live at the beach if you let her). Once it got a little chilly we decided to head back to the other side and head home!
It’s always fun to get away for a little, especially with day trips, just a little escape and with my favorite people! What more could I ask for?! Definitely keep Balboa Funzone/Balboa Island in mind when you are thinking of a fun day trip to do with your friends, significant other or little ones!
