What you'll do
Samantha Brown found this place to love...see her segment on Orange County, CA. You will love it, too! Meet me on the Peninsula near the ferry (street and lot parking close by) at Palm Street where we will board and take the short (less than 1,000 ft) ride across to the Island. Once on the Island, we will stroll South Bay Front to the Grand Canal getting up close and personal to the multi-million dollar homes along the beach and harbor. Then, we'll make our way back to the ferry terminal for the return trip to the Fun Zone where you will hop aboard the Ferris Wheel to get a unique view of Orange County. Be prepared for a long ride. There is so much to see! It is considered the best value on the boardwalk. I will photograph you during your entire Experience and deliver the photos during and after the event. Feel free to continue and explore on your own at the end of this Experience in Balboa Village and the pier - just a few steps away.
I'm a professional photographer, passionate traveler, educator and have called Southern California home for over a quarter century. Along with a BSBA and other certifications and awards, I earned the Photographic Craftsman (Cr.Photog.) degree from Professional Photographers of America for service as a speaker and mentor. I enjoy sharing my skills and my little slice of heaven here in Orange County. This intimate experience places you near the ocean, exclusive homes, and fun activities in one of the liveliest towns in Southern California. Get a birds-eye view of the O.C. from the Ferris Wheel

You are sure to enjoy it during the day, at sunset, or after dark.
