Historic Homes, Balboa Island!

I thought  you might be interested in this little bit of Balboa Island Trivia.  The Island is comprised of 3 Man Made Islands, Balboa Island, Little Island and Collins Island. In a recent post…..I told you about a home for sale on Collins Island.

Prior to 1906, the Island was just a sand spit. Thanks to the insight of developer William S. Collins, we now have Balboa Island. He began dredging the channel around Snipe Island, depositing sand onto the tidelands……resulting in Balboa Island!

In 1929 the Island boasted 100 residents. Today it claims over 3,000 residents. There are currently 101 Historic Homes on the Island. Each bronze plaque hoors a home that has been on the Island at least 60 years. Stop by our Balboa Island Museum and Historical Society. Close to the Ferry and Pilates Bt The Sea!!  Wed. and Sat. 10am – 2 pm 949 675-3952

 Have you ever been to the Island? If so, please share your positive experiences 🙂

I’ll give you more “B.I. trivia” in aother Blog. I did want to tell you that

Let’s talk Tennis!!

If you like tennis and live in Orange County, Ca…..this is a great event! This weekend is the finals of the Adoption Guild Tennis Tournament held at the Newport Beach Tennis Club on Eastbluff. The first rounds were played at area Clubs last weekend and Sat. night we had a great party for the Players with great food from participating Restraunts along with a great band….The Blue’s Racquet. Fun was had by ALL!! This is an annual charity tournament that draws a great group of players and raises money for Holy Family Services. Holy Family Services is celebrating 60 years of Adoption and Foster care placement.  Please see www.adoptionguild.org for more information. The play offs will have some great open players and if you donate clothes or food for the children, you can get in free. Otherwise the cost is very nominal!  Another great feature is the Silent Auction which will be held Sat. and Sunday from 10:00 to 3:00. Once again we have some great auction items!!
