Do you know of Patrick Kelly who painted a
limited edition called "Balboa Days". We have an original copy and
would like to know it's value.
I Love your website! I have been to Balaboa California every summer
since I can remember to go on vacation. I love to come to your
website and see how everything is going down there and see any new
news. As I was reading some of the viewer emails and comments I
noticed one of them talking about the Balboa Market closed...? Is
that true? If so when did it close? Also is the Fun Zone still
there? Or what is giong in its place..? So if you could please help
me and let me know if they have closed or it was just a rumor.
Please write back when you get a chance. Thanks for your time.

Great site! I view it often. I think the camera you have marked
"Balboa Beach West" is either incorrect or misleading - it is the
Newport Pier. If that's what you want to show, why not name it
are you on the Myspace?
We, too, are lovers of Balboa since we discovered it in 2003, and
we visit as much as we can. We're from Pennsylvania and are
readying for our annual trip. Since we fly and then rent a car, we
are limited in the amount of equipment we can bring. This year we
are going to have a lot more time to lounge on the beach, so we
were wondering if anyone out there could help us with some info. Is
there anyplace in Balboa that rents beach umbrellas or tent
shelters, and beach chairs? As I mentioned we can't bring them on
the plane, but we don't recall finding any shops that have this
type of equipment. I know that there is a surf shop on 15th street
but that's about it, and I'm not sure they are into what we're
looking for. We're willing to buy if we have to, but since we'd
have to leave the equipment behind it just makes more sense to
rent. We hope to hear from anyone with suggestions, and thanks to
Jim Fournier, we're also looking forward to seeing you again in
your shop. Your Tales of Balboa screen saver is installed on all of
our computers. Maybe you'll remember the "Disney teacher" and his
wife. We certainly enjoy your Tales of Balboa website all year.

I am writing because I am a tour operator and some of our travelers
expressed an interest in attending the annual garage sale in May
2008. We will be coming to Balboa Island from Los Angeles on a
bus.I wrote Carolyn Carr for information about bus parking and was
referred to you.
Will you be able to help us with parking our bus?
My grandmother was Henrietta Tudor (Grand) she
was the daughter, I believe of Harry "Pop" Tudor who at some point
built and owned the Rendezvous Pavilion ballroom. She was married
to Marcel Grand and died when my father was approximately five
years old of tuberculosis. As I understand it she was in a
sanitorium for tb. I would like to find out where she is buried
and I would also like to find out if she had any siblings and if
they have offspring that may be living . I just would love to find
out anything I can about any of the family. My father (Harry Tudor
Grand) is deceased now and I really have a constant pull to find
out more about the family. I have old pictures of the Rendezvous
and a lot of pictures of sailboats. It appears my grandmother was
very interested in sailing. If anyone has any info regarding this
family I would love to hear from you.
