At least until he tried to eat the sand . . .After the beach we picked up lunch at In N Out (which was at the top of Larry's list of things we must do while in California). Then Larry's mom took us to tour three of Standard Pacific's model homes at their new development, The Tides (she works for Standard Pacific). Umm. . . WOW! Larry came out of the first one and said that if he could go back in time and specialize in interventional cardiology he would because even though his job would bite, it would be worth it to come home to that house every day. The pictures on their web site don't even begin to do it justice. If only we had an extra $7,000,000.00!
We ended the day shopping on Balboa Island. I love Balboa Island. I love just walking around looking at all of the fun vacation homes and browsing through the stores. We stopped to get some famous Balboa Bars while we were there too. They take a brick on vanilla ice cream on a stick and then they dip it in chocolate and roll it in whatever toppings you request. Yum!
