Christmas vacation and a blue New Year

Newport Beach, Balboa Island penguin house

Took the second half of December off, for a real Christmas holiday.

Picked my son up at the San Diego Airport on December 15 and drove up to Newport Beach to see the Christmas Boat Parade. We took the ferry to Balboa Island where there was a contest for the best home Christmas light display. The stuffed penguins in front of the red,white and blue Christmas trees was my favorite, although there were many marvelous displays.

Wanted to post the video of the boat parade but don’t choose to pay for video upgrade. There are ample videos of the Newport Beach boat parade on YouTube.

Had a wonderful if very wet California Christmas. Got my manuscript back from the professional editor and drove on up to San Francisco on December 30.

 Will cover Blue New Year in next post.
