|Back at our RV site....and purring once again.|
|Hector's youngest sister, Sharon (dark hair in the middle) was visiting from Newfoundland. Her and husband, Terry (black T-shirt on the right) were enjoying their first time in the Palm Springs area.|
|It was an outdoor 5 STAR meal......|
|The propane fireplace kept everyone nice and warm.|

Hector and I enjoy golf and we had a mid-week game planned at the Palm Desert Golf Resort; where my nephew, Ted is the Superintendent. Thursday morning's 9:08 am tee off was under perfect golfing conditions. A nice Seattle couple joined us, the sun was out, the sky was blue and there was no wind.

Before our Tee-off, we got to chat with my nephew for well over 30 minutes. He had to run off to look after some business when Hector and I headed out for Hole #1. Catching up on our lives kept me from taking a photo. We will be visiting again soon.....and photos will be posted.
The Santa Anna winds were blowing hard yesterday (Friday). Our sun shade and awning had to come down. A good thing too! The gusts would have torn the awning off its mounts. We have not experienced winds that harsh in several years.
|An outing at Cabot's Pueblo Museum, Desert Hot Springs.|
|Waokie: Carved on site by Peter Toth in 1978 as part of his 'Trial of the Whispering Giants," the giant sequoia carving was intended to raise awareness of the spirit, culture and plight of Native Americans.|
|Cabot's Pueblo was his home and personal museum until his death in 1965|
|Tourists have the choice of purchasing a guided tour or taking a self guided tour at no charge.|
History states that Cabot found this area in 1913, dug only a 3' hole with a shovel and pick, and discovered the healing hot springs waters. Only 600 yards over and he discovered fresh, clear, clean and cool drinking water. Desert Hot Springs got its name for the numerous hot springs resorts that were built up in the hills above the Palm Springs/Palm Desert floor.
The heavy Friday winds have abated somewhat today (Saturday). Although it is still breezy, the heavy gusts aren't prevalent. We hope it stays that way.
Thanks for dropping in.
