Ocotillo Wells BLM, Salton Sea, California
This morning we had plans and so up early, a quick coffee and we were out the door. A $75.00 pump at the local fuel spot had us with only a quarter of a tank more than when I started to squeeze the handle. I guess $5.99 per gallon will do that.
We were through Indio and into Indian Wells, California knocking on Janet's door by 10 AM PST. She looks wonderful and we haven't seen her for a long while. We've missed her but we do stay in touch via phone and text messages. We visited at their home for a long while and we even picked some fresh grapefruit from her tree. We finally headed off to Mexicali's, an authentic Mexican restaurant in Indio. Can you believe I didn't take a photo of Janet or the restaurant? Well, I didn't! We had a great visit and hopefully will see her again back in Ontario before fall.
Riley and I were back home around 3 pm PST and have just kind of been resting and I've been editing photos for tonight's blog. Please forgive the dirty windshield in any of the photos, we just can't seem to keep it clean.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you've had a good day.
Until next time...
Take care, stay safe,
I don't even golf and that's a back yard that I could get used to!ReplyDelete
Dennis golfs everyday, he just had a hip replacement and couldn’t golf until late December. Janet golfs 3 or 4 days a week.Delete
Pretty back yard and yes those are bougainvillea, I love them but most locals consider them a weed.ReplyDelete
They are the prettiest weed I have ever seen.Delete
Nice to get a family visit in. Wow, that's a hefty fuel price!!ReplyDelete
This was a very special visit for us. It’s been a while. The fuel prices were high but for future reference the Red Earth casino just up the way now has fuel, including diesel, which we didn’t know and the tag was a dollar a gallon cheaper.Delete
Wow. Palm Springs has some beautiful views. Bougainvilleas grow easily but they can be messy.ReplyDelete
It is a beautiful place they have in Indian Wells and we always enjoy the views. They may be messy but most flowering plants/shrubs are. They are pretty though and plentiful.Delete
Wow, what a great back yard. Wonderful that you were able to spend time visiting with family. The last picture looks like the view we had eating lunch a couple of days ago. Walmart parking lot by any chance?ReplyDelete
We were so happy to get this visit. It is a fantastic back yard for certain. It was indeed the Indio Walmart just off Monroe. Lol. Might ya been there? LolDelete
What a beautiful place to hang out. I do love the GREEN of Indio.ReplyDelete
It is an oasis for certain. We always enjoy our visits.Delete
