Newport Harbor in Newport Beach I wanted to share this photo with you of Newport Harbor. I love taking photos and most of them are taken with my iPhone. This was taken last week in Newport Beach at a bay front listing at Peninsula Point. The bay front homes have a dynamic view and it changes as the boats travel by. I never tire of looking at it, and truly appreciate where I live. If you are interested in a Newport Beach home for sale, please contact me.

Balboa Island Ferry in Newport Beach At preview on Friday, I was previewing some amazing homes on Peninsula Point in Newport Beach. I always enjoy taking the Balboa Island Ferry across to Balboa Island.  A very scenic and beautiful way to see Newport Harbor.      The ferry holds 3 cards, bicycles and pedestrians.     The Balboa Island Ferry is a ferry which transports autos, pedestrians and bicycles to and from Balboa Island to the Balboa Peninsula. The Balboa Island Ferry has been in existence since 1919. It is an amazing way to view the Harbor. It is a very short trip - usually about 3 minutes, but picturesque just the same. Have a enjoyable day this Sunday!

Balboa Peninsula Point in Newport Beach | Homes for Sale on Balboa Peninsula Point One of my most favorite areas of Newport Beach is Balboa Peninsula Point. It is located at the end of the Balboa Peninsula and there are beautiful homes in this area. There are ocean front homes and there are also bay front homes. Some prefer bay front because the view is always changing. The view never ceases to amaze me, and I am grateful that I am able to work in such an incredible area with such beautiful homes. This photo was taken from one of the homes on preview, and absolute incredible view. No mooring directly in front of this gorgeous home. I always love to go outside and take a photo! Happy Sunday everyone!                                 Search the MLS for Balboa Peninsula Point homes for sale...

These photos were taken in Newport Shores in Newport Beach, and the clouds reflecting on the Canal was so beautiful and peaceful today.

I wanted to share this photo tonight as we have had so many gorgeous sunsets despite our incredibly uncomfortable weather.

Speechless Sundays - Another Beautiful Day       There are so many days when I realize what a beautiful place I live and how lucky I am to be able to call Orange County home.  Being so close to the beach doesn't hurt anything either.   I remember the first time a friend asked me if I thought it was weird to see palm trees everywhere.  I commented that I thought it would be weird  not to see palm trees everywhere.

Newport Shores in Newport Beach | Homes for Sale in Newport Beach   Tonight I am going to share a photo blog with you, the sunset was absolutely amazing, and it kept on getting better and better. Started taking photos with my iPhone then progressed to my Canon 60D as I really cannot go wrong. The sunset kept changing tonight and only got better and better. The clouds were moving in (and hopefully going to give us some rain), and made for an AMAZING sky. Hope you all have a fantastic week!
