Not so fab photos

Someday, when I grow up, I will own only things that work as they should. Until then, I have days like today where I bring my 8 year old daughter's cheapy little digital camera on my 6 mile walk. Apparently there's no software to get the pictures downloaded from my phone onto the computer(what??) or something like that. Currently I am waiting for my 13 year old son's phone to receive all of the pictures I sent him from my phone... pictures from my AZ walks. His phone has software.


This morning my friend, Becky, and I met in Newport Beach at 6:30am for our 6 mile training walk - to and around Balboa Island. I had never been there before, despite living in this area for almost 12 years, so I was excited to see something new and share my fabulous photo collage. Unfortunately, a bunch of my pictures didn't come out well. Nor did these that I chose to share with you anyway...

'Kayso, there's boats and homes. These are actually in Newport just before we crossed the bridge to the island. Can you see the tiny crab on the rocks? No? You'll just have to trust me on that.

Then we have a few failed attempts to take pictures of the streets lined with cute little cottage houses and/or piers. The beachfront houses have piers and decks along the beach. Some decks are simple, and some have stuff... like the Statue of Liberty..

Some have wooden (??leaf??) llamas, and some just have pretty statues.
In that bottom left picture you can see Balboa Fun Zone in the background (or you could if the image was even 50% better). Can you spot the Ferris Wheel? Just FYI, we did not take the ferry over and go to the arcade.

For better pictures go here (if that link really works I'll be thrilled, Thanks LeAnne!)


  1. Wow, what a jumbled mess! That is not how it looked when I hit the "preview" button. Sigh.
    I am sooooooooo not good at the fancy stuff.

  2. These are fun pictures, Deb. I especially love that llama! I haven't been to Balboa island in ages. Sounds like a fun walk for you and your friend! BTW, do you collect friends named Becky or what? :-)
