A Little Christmas Fun Here on the Back Bay


20151206_214914_resizedWhile this isn’t our ideal location of RV living spot, as we like the more remote and fully nature surrounded parks away from the city, it is a very amenity-rich and accessible area to a lot of things living on the Back Bay at Newport Dunes.20151206_214933_resized

I’m everything not Orange County, but that has also created an interesting and powerful dichotomy, as many of us find ourselves living in areas for other purposes bigger than ourselves.20151207_184536_resized

Regardless and despite the close spaces and urban setting, there are a lot of cool things here, which include living right on the lagoon with kayaking, boating, paddle boarding – you name it, walking and biking access to the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge, biking accessibility to Balboa Island and beach boardwalk that takes you all the way up the coast to Seal Beach, pool and jacuzzi, playground and swings (I’ve enjoyed very much!), a mini market, clubhouse with weekly events and arts and crafts, walking distance to restaurants and close to movie theater, park events and concerts, and gorgeous sunsets and wildlife due to the bird sanctuary here.20151207_184447_resized

However, the things I love most are the lagoon and back bay we walk a lot to take in the wildlife and serenity, and of course the wild rabbit that lives here and makes herself known at synchronous times.20151206_214803_resized

And now the Christmas lights and decorations that are all around the RV park here are warming my inner child’s heart, including some of my favorite characters – Yukon Cornelius, the Misfit Toys, Santa, and the Abominable! (missing Hermie and Rudolph however!) 20151206_214819_resized20151206_214842_resizedThere are light displays set up from onset of coming into the park.20151207_184404_resized20151207_184423_resized

And a majority of people decorate their RVs inside and out.20151207_184648_resized They also have a light display that sits right on the water of the lagoon, which looks so magickal when the water is like a glass mirror of liquid darkness that the lights sit upon, making the trees look like those spinning top toys when they are erect or like a whirling dervish dancing on a mirrored floor.20151206_215216_resized20151206_220306_resized

We were walking around the lagoon a couple of nights ago and I snapped these photos on our walk of the lagoon and the light displays in the park, as I giggled at the characters I discovered.20151206_215327_resized

20151206_220213_resizedAs we started to cross the “Happy Holidays” entrance to the bridge we heard the call of a Great Blue Heron that had been sitting near it and in the dark we caught his graceful body and massive wing expanse flying across the water, landing on one of the platforms of a lighted Christmas tree. You can just make out his form there, lit by the lights, to the right in these two photos below. What a wonderful gift and symbolism.20151206_220353_resized20151206_220356_resized Anyway, I thought I’d share some of the Christmas light fun and beauty here to awaken that spirit of childlike wonder within you.20151206_215638_resized20151206_215317_resized And like the stillness of the water, set aglow by the lighted Christmas trees mirroring their images upon it, may you also experience that peace within you that is always available, regardless of the energy around, and stand in your light as an example for others to reflect their own.20151206_215024_resized
