Right smack in the middle of final exams, end of the semester research projects, and the chaos of moving out of the dorms, came my much needed break from mundane reality---sorority formal. This year the lovely event took place aboard a gorgeous yacht. We set sail at sunset and toured the beautiful Newport Beach Marina. The view offered a pink, blue and orange sunset, homes that ranged from tiny cottages to enormous waterfront mansions, and the tall, distinctive office buildings of the nearby city. Restaurants along the marina included Joe's Crab Shack, Remy Bar, and a few others. Because of its location, which is close to major cities like Irvine and L.A., Newport Beach makes a quick, relaxing, easy weekend getaway.
