|We have been to Newport RI on our great adventure and yesterday we went to Newport Beach CA, one of my favorite California places. Shirley, Julie, Elyse and I drove the short distance to Newport Beach, had lunch and toured the harbor via boat. What a beautiful day. Bright sun and temps in the mid 70s and no wind. A great day on the water. The least expensive home in Newport Beach is $6 million. Many famous people live here. My fave was Bill Medley's (Righteous Brothers) house. After the cruise we hit the Balboa Pier and another Ruby's for ice cream. The Strachan's who we are freeloading from are off to the desert for the weekend so it is just the two of us hanging out. The weather has been great and we look forward to biking and hiking today. Enjoy the pics.
