|Desert Hot Springs neighbourhood|
|High up tee box.....on the Mission Lakes Country Club.|
|Even the sight of snow on a hot day is stunning!|
|There are hundreds of these in the valley.|
|Would be nice to know just how much energy is created by the wind and these huge wind generating turbines.|
|Pal Springs town centre.|
|I am looking for my star.....but it's nowhere to be found! Uhmmmm.....I'll keep looking!|
|Shops galore! This is a mecca for the shopping enthusiast. Not for me though!...Not for Jeanette either!!!|
|I found this star on the walk of fame.....I could be getting close to finding my own!!|
|And speaking of Sonny Bono, look below. We found him.....hiding behind these sunglasses.|
|He kept ignoring us. A very stiff personality, don't you think?|
|Nice architecture. Reminded us of typical buildings in the Bahamas.|
|Jeanette took this shot. I think she misses our ride......being repaired in nearby Cathedral City.|
|Nice shot with the mountains in the background.|
|We chose Mexican!!!!|
|Fresh Mexican chips and salsa. Yummmm!|
As we got up to leave....the hostess wished us a nice day and thanked us for coming in. We coloured our lunch time experience for her. She felt really bad about that! So....we left without contributing financially to the slightly depressed Palm Springs economy. It really was a nice restaurant.....but the fault lies directly with the waiter. Ho Hum!!!
|Our RV spot - shot from our entry stairs....I'm talking up a wonderful Class 'A' RV'er neighbour from Maine.|
Although we had agreed to stay in contact, we had not called them since our arrival at the Sands RV and Golf Resort in Desert Hot Springs. Purely by coincidence, Lucky and Trina had been on a hike with a group from our park. They were just leaving for their home park, not far away. We had a nice chat, exchanged some jokes, stories and laughs, and agreed to get together soon. That will happen. These are great folks.....and we cherish their friendship.

Rick & Paulette's RV Travels
For the uninitiated, Rick is an IT guru and has gained a valuable and respected reputation in the RV'ing blog world. As former manager of IT for the city of Vitcoria, BC, Rick has helped countless RV'ers, and others too, with their computer issues. He was valuable to us too when I emailed him with questions about RV'ing internet and cell topics.
It was finally nice to finally meet you Rick. We look forward to meeting Paulette too.
So....after a bar-b-q dinner at the rig last evening, Jeanette and I drove into Palm Desert to see a movie. We saw, 'The Fighter'. It was OK....but we have seen better. It was then home to bed for a needed rest - after expending so much energy looking for my star on the walk of fame - for an early morning round of golf here at the resort.
Wishing all a wonderful day. Thank you for stopping by.
