Lens Artists Photo Challenge – Everyday Moments

Newport Beach in southern California is 27 miles or 35 minutes’ drive from our home. We go often to spend half a day there. The Beach offers family activities such as whale watching, harbor cruise, fishing, dining, museum, Ferris wheel, water sports and more. We have done different activities or simply take a leisure walk along the beach.

Balboa Island is an island along the harborside. There are 3,000 residents live on 0.2 square miles (0.52 km2). A lot size on Balboa Island is 30 feet x 85 feet. Residents have private docks for their yachts. It’s delightful to walk through the community to appreciate the different motif of the decorations.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Everyday Moments

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Blue

We went on a whale watching cruise. We didn’t see whales, but we saw many bottlenose dolphins coming up to the surface of the water. A few private yachts were floating in place simply for yachting. The calm and blue water reflected the clear sky was serene. Whether we saw the whale or not, it was a refreshing cruise.
