After five days of wind, we had the most wonderful day.
Teresa and I decided to take advantage of the weather, and headed outside.
We checked out the pool, here at the Sand's resort.
|Gorgeous pool, golf course, and mountain views|
|Two hot tubs|
Next on our list was the short drive to the College of the Desert Street Fair.
|Hot and sunny brought out the crowds|
Teresa almost fell over herself fussing over this cute dog with it's own sunglasses.
|Very cute in sunglasses, and so is the pooch !|
Remember how we keep being surprised by bumping into people we know. Well it happened again today.
I had just purchased a hat to go hiking with, because my ever growing bald spot just keeps growing.
As I walked out of the hat booth, I looked up, and saw a gentleman with the same looking hat on. I made some kind of comment about how I thought my hat was a one of a kind original, when it suddenly hit me that I was talking to John from RV Life on Wheels
|Me with Judy and John|
Teresa and I have been following this Canadian fulltime couple for the last couple of years. We are hoping to meet up with them again before we leave here. They are such a friendly couple.
All of this walking sure works up an appetite, so of course we had to stop for some fries and a date shake.
|Put down the camera so I can start eating|
We enjoyed the sights and sounds, and suddenly realized the vendors were closing up shop, because the fair was over.
Instead of heading straight home, we decided to continue on Monterey Ave into the mountains.
The name of the street changes to Pines to Palms and begins a series of switchbacks as you head up in altitude.
|Some curves had us slowing down to 30 mph|
We both started laughing out loud when we looked at the GPS trying to keep us on the road.
The view at the top is simply amazing.
|Dang ... It looks like my new hat blew off|
We carefully drove back down the twisty road and headed for home.
As we were pulling into our site we saw Paulette walking the fur kids.
I didn't think our day could get any better but I was wrong.
Rick and Paulette invited us to go to one of the most popular bistro's in Palm Springs.
|Busy day and night at Shermans|
Shermans offers great food, and has a very lively atmosphere. There were lineups to get in, although the wait time is minimal.
|Paulette and Rick|
Even though the portions were quite large, we decided to try some dessert.
|Excuse me miss - May I have one of everything|
The cakes were every bit as good as they looked.
It was just one of those days when you wish it would never end !
