Photo Diary of a Sunday in LA

The day started off in Santa Monica for a lazy brunch...

{View from brunch at The Penthouse in Santa Monica}
{Huevos Rancheros}

...continued with a drive in the convertible down to Balboa Island in Newport Beach for an afternoon of boating

{Heavenly jasmine on Balboa Island} 
{Beautiful home gardens in Balboa Island}
{Balboa Island "fair" fare included corn-dogs and frozen bananas}
{Fun retro soda at Balboa Candy store}

...winding down with a gorgeous sunset drive back to LA, a text-message alert to an impeding presidential announcement, turning on the radio and listening to (accurate) speculation of Osama Bin Laden's death culminating with President Obama's official announcement

{Gorgeous sunset leaving Newport Beach}

...then becoming too tired to eat out after a long fun-filled day and opting to pick up Japanese take-out at Izakaya by Katsu-ya on 3rd street and dessert from Magnolia Bakery.
