The past couple of days have rolled by quickly. We are well set up in Desert Hot Springs @ Sam's Spa and RV Resort. This is a really cool place. It's our first time in this park and we grew to like it almost instantly.
|Very nice - long - site|
|Nice, wide streets.|
|Check out this rig and the long, very long, pull through site.|
|The desert view looking west towards the San Jacinto Mountains.|
|The winds have behaved, since our arrival.|
|We rode out of the park and headed for Palm Desert|
According to Wikipedia, Fred Waring was a popular musician, bandleader and radio-television personality, sometimes referred to as "America's Singing Master" and "The Man Who Taught America How to Sing."
|Great day for a ride through this Palm Desert area on Fred Waring Drive.|
|Very easy to park a motorcycle in downtown Palm Springs.|
|Ruby's is a great diner with the true retro look of the 50's|
|Hmm....I might be arm twisted into trading in for this pretty bike.....but it would take a very strong arm for that to happen.|
Orvon Grover Autry (September 29, 1907 – October 2, 1998), better known as Gene Autry, was an American performer who gained fame as a singing cowboy on the radio, in movies, and on television for more than three decades beginning in the early 1930s. Autry was also owner of a television station, several radio stations in Southern California, and the Los Angeles/California/Anaheim Angels Major League Baseball team from 1961 to 1997. (Wikipedia)
Yesterday was departure day for Jeanette. She had an early evening flight back to our home, in south west coastal British Columbia.
We enjoyed an outdoor breakfast at our site, while the washer was busy with one load of clothes. With the second load in, we left for a nice walk around the RV park.
Near noon, we took a telephone call from Ontarians, George and Suzie Yates of Our Awesome Travels fame. These are true full time RVers with plenty of experience and stories about their travels. They summer back home in southern Ontario and traipse all over the US south east and south west in the winter months. These two are veteran RVers.
|L-R George, Suzie, Me and Jeanette - I pirated this photo from George and Suzie's blog.|
|George is relaxed and engaged while relating one of his many RVing stories.|
|Suzie is a reading fanatic.....and she has the books to prove it!|
With laundry on the line back at our site, and a few more tasks to complete before heading to the Palm Springs Airport, we said our good byes and headed back for our site. Fun visit we had, in person, with a truly nice RV'ing couple.
|Likely to get one more afternoon ride in today before flying back home.|
I leave on Saturday evening for home too....and that is quite likely where I will post the next blog.
|Paulette and Rick Doyle|
Thanks for dropping by.
