Fashion Island is an upscale open-air lifestyle center in Newport Beach, California. I had the good fortune of visiting Fashion Island a few weeks ago. As I was exploring this lovely shopping center, I came across a group of people putting the finishing touches on a beautiful Christmas tree.
What can I say...I love Christmas and all it's trimmings. I hail from the Great White North, so it always fascinates me to see decorated Christmas trees in warm climates, especially next to palm trees.
Kudos to Fashion Island and their staff on obtaining and garnishing such an awesome Christmas tree.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our TravelGumbo family and friends a very Merry Christmas, and a healthy, happy, prosperous New Year.
