We spent last week in Palm Springs, CA. My brother owns a vacation time share and had extra points he couldn't use. He asked if I would be interested. DUH, of course I said we were. So off we went.
We had a wonderful relaxing time. We were there from Monday through Friday. We were lucky in that the weather was decent most of the time. It didn't start getting really hot until Thursday night.
Tuesday we did the tram ride up the mountain. It is an incredible ride!
The next day we drove over to Oceanside, CA to get some much needed beach time in. It was a beautiful day. Definitely worth the two hour drive.
On Thursday we spent the day poolside at the resort then went into Palm Springs for the evening. While there, we drove around looking for some of the old movie star houses. Although they are easy to get to, they are hard to see due to walls around the homes. Among the houses we located were Liberace, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Marilyn Monroe and Barbra Streisand.
They have a street fair every Thursday evening on the main drag. We walked around for a bit then had a lovely dinner.
It was good to get away and just enjoy ourselves. We spend so much time thinking about and getting ready for the big move. We figured this will probably be one of the last road trips we take before moving into the RV. So glad we got this opportunity.
