road trip days sixteen and seventeen: relaxing in newport

drinks and views
After a busy week at Disneyland, it was nice to sleep in and relax while we were in Newport Beach.
Coffee on the balcony with a view and piƱa coladas at the pool with a view!

fun at the pool
Fun -and relaxing!- afternoon at the pool!

Lunch at one of our faves, Wahoo's!  We didn't realize that the one we go to is actually the original location!

fun on the ferry
We took the ferry over to Balboa Island- Nick got out to look around while Ben and Ellie stayed in the van (Chris and Lexie were with Grandma and Grandpa on the ferry behind us so no pics of them!).

balboa bars
The main reason we went to Balboa Island was to get Balboa Bars- a delicious rectangle of ice cream, hand dipped in chocolate and coated in toppings.  We went to Dad's Original (though Sugar 'n' Spice is the other contender for "original") and were treated to amazing ice cream bars coated in butter brickle!

balboa candy
Of course, we also had to stop at Balboa Candy and get some treats for later!

Goodnight, Newport Beach.
