The Newport Beach Pier gives you a fantastic view of the sunset over the Pacific in Orange County, California. The pier has sweeping views of the surrounding fancy houses, and you may also get to see lots of the local fisherman catching the freshest seafood off the pier. But the real star of the show is the sun, of course, which puts on an incredibly colorful show before dipping down beneath the waves. Definitely a must-do if you're in Southern California! (#beach) Every year the city of Newport Beach does a boat parade around the harbor. The best part is that, in addition to decorating the boats for Christmas, they decorate the docks and houses along the waterfront. It’s a Christmas wonderland! Come to the balboa pier and play the arcade games, eat some pizza, and ride the Ferris wheel! Beautiful sunset at balboa island. Enjoying the last days of November! Bacon wrapped pickles...YES! A culinary masterpiece! 3...2...1... Launch...
Epic waves brought surfers, body boarders and crowds to watch it all.
#BvSWater Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joes? Why not! Looking for perspective come out and play at the wedge! Surf is up!
#waterlust Regardless of the weather - the beaches & piers at Balboa and Newport are stunning year round. Bring a friend and relax as the waves come in...
#BvSWater #longexposure #ocean #pier ...from Balboa Island.
Its a great little island to see the funky homes, grab a coffee or a quick bite to eat.
If you aren't in a hurray, there is also a three car ferry that putters across to the peninsula. Sedum at sunset.
The variety and number of these on the property was really astonishing. Bird on a wire. More specifically, a Scrub Jay on a wire. But that kind of ruins the poetry, doesn't it? Bougainvillea bush at night under incandescent light.
Did not have much chance to share some of the marvels of the house where we stayed in the OC.
Such a beautiful place. At night or during the day. A whole urn-full of sedum basking under the long, late rays of the sun. Founded by Candace Nelson, this cupcake boutique offers delicious, moist, and decadent treats. There are several locations throughout California, and you can vote to bring Sprinkles to your town! I'd recommend the red velvet and lemon coconut. Sprinkles also offers different flavors depending on the day of the week. Candice Nelson is also featured on Food Network's show Cupcake Wars! Just another beast shot yesterday...
#waterlust Great view from awesome homes located here in Newport Beach. Go time A bit more muted color scheme with the incandescent lights still waiting on their timer.
Remember that bird on the wire. Newport Beach, CA. December 20, 2015. Newport back bay beautiful all times of the year . Even during the winter you can still experience a beautiful sunset View from the Newport Beach pier. Just something fun for family and friend to do for the summer in California Heavy shallow waves
#waterlust #beach #ocean #waterlust #newportbeach #california Anti Lab Mall Nothing like a great hamburger on a #sundayfunday #foodiefinds The beach clears out after 4...just in time for some sunset yoga. #lens4change #BeachBound I love a pacific coast sunset. #newport #beach #california The Balboa Beach Pier makes for a great photography subject but it's also an incredible place to spend time with family & friends. Parking is typically easy to find and it's a great way to spend the evening! A cloudy Newport Beach California. It's certainly just as busy as any other SoCal beach around here but the boardwalk area is fun for cruising a beach cruiser While waiting for our boat to take a spin around Newport Harbor, we were greeted by one of the resident fowls of Newport Beach. Sunset in Newport Beach. Beautiful Tones... A walk on the beach is always a good idea. Especially on gorgeous January SoCal days! #lens4change #BeachBound #sunset last night at the beautiful Newport #Beach Sunrise walk at the pier... beautiful Couple of Newport Beach, watering hole institutions, and some of what remains of the old school, Newport Beach, apres surf culture of yesteryear: Blackie's and The Beach Ball. If you are in town, and want a taste of the real surfer/biker/beach bum- lifer culture, you need to saddle up to one, or both of these bars. So great to see they've made it this far. Bottoms up! Finding a reason to get out of bed #beach
Seems time has stopped in this SoCa community and that's want I enjoyed the most here: slow pace stroll on a beach, a bike ride, and grabbing a lunch at one of the local eateries. Take a $1 ferry ride to a Balboa Island for shopping and tourist attractions Christmas tradition in Newport Beach brings a huge tree in for decoration. This years edition is purportedly 90 feet high. A cool sign in Belize!!! The perfection exists !!! . Morning stroll before the winds gets stronger. Great spot overlooking the harbor, with average (bar) food, but really cold beer and lots of old-school character. I used to frequent the place in the mid 80s, and it's still going strong. Once owned by Chuck Norris's wife, Linda. Rollerblading Huntington Beach to the Wedge. #beach Mimosa sampler! Waves at the Wedge! If you want to see a strong current I suggest you come here! #waterlust #pigeons #beachside #sand #beach #ocean #waterlust #newportbeach #california Waiting for the Freelance Harbor cruise to see the nicely decorated houses for Christmas. This Chef doesn't mess around. A bit pricey however the food is so worth it! The duck liver pate was absolutely amazing and you have to try the octopus salad. I have never in my life has such tender octopus! The fillet with roasted garlic is another favorite. The Fall and Winter months the Chef serves a steak tatare and is how it should be prepared; with a quail's egg! Jet packing over Newport, California! #waterlust If you find yourself in Newport Beach or really any of the OC and want some of the freshest fish and crab possible head over to the Dory Fishing Fleet Market.
You'll need to get up super early if you want the best selection but man is it worth it! You'll want to check their website to see what's in season before you go. Enjoy! Like is an adventure... enjoy it! Love this spot; try to visit early AM every trip to Newport (15th St.). Best breakfast burrito in SoCal, hands down, served right on the strand/sand. Amazing donuts! Made with fresh ingredients everyday! The flavors are well put together! Love the maple/bacon, however the rosemary is a great option as well! Check them out!!! Balboa Island 2017 A place to see some up close a personal waves and riders Ok ok I get it. Shortest line at the fair! Surprisingly, the BEST fish and chips I've ever eaten. The restaurant is right on the water with inside or outside seating. Great service! Bam! #beach Corona Del Mar Palisades Tennis Club is a great place to drop in and play tennis - everyone was very friendly and the facilities (and bar!) are great. #lifeatexpedia September evening in Newport Beach 2008 in USA Summer Sunset - Balboa Pier Newport Beach #LoveMyTown Take a long way home !!! Raving! What a wonderful experience to paddle at night. Loved every second of it! A wonderful way to re-charge batteries after a busy week... One of the things about California is their love for in and out burger. Definitely a Californian! Sometimes you just got to eat burger an in and out burger. No matter how obsessed we are of being healthy and fit every now and then we splurge.😍 2017 Catalina Crossing Finish After Party. A great end to a great season for all Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe racers in the southern CA region. #Festival Sunrise walk Another great afternoon with my inflatable SUP View toward NB Fresh! The best BLT I've ever had.
#restaurant #california #gastropost Best micheladas around! Sunset on Balboa Pier After the rain shot of Lookout Point. Usually a nice spot to relax and watch the sailboats Another watering hole to add to your list of old-school, surfer hangs. This place is as old as the hills, and it's so cool to see it's still going strong. Love the message on the marquis (classic)! Paddleboarding towards the sunset with my nixy iSUP 2017 Catalina Crossing Finish. 35 mile outrigger canoe race finale for the season. #Festival View from Castaways Park House at the “V” Cute patio. Tasty foods. Hey #newportbeach #ocean #waves #california #beach #waterlust Loved this little community. You can walk everywhere. The Bay of Newport at night so calm.
