Fountains to shop by

Open-air shopping malls don’t make sense in places where snow and rain come down for half of the year (such as Canada and the northern U.S). But in California where the weather is pretty nice most of the year, outdoor shopping is commonplace. So it’s no surprise that decorative fountains are part of the streetscape in these retail meccas. I visited two of these recently:

Bella Terra in Huntington Beach

and Fashion Island in Newport Beach.
