We’ve had an unusually social few weeks in San Diego and Palm Springs, with family and friends in town from the East Coast and local friends visiting the area. It’s been wonderful to spend time with everyone, and good for all of us to have so much social interaction. Especially for Chris and me. We didn’t realize how much we were missing – adult conversation! With a variety of adults!
We’ve enjoyed being back in Desert Hot Springs, at the same RV park we stayed at in December. We’re going to miss the relaxing hot spring mineral pools and the big swimming pool surrounded by palm trees. The awesome free yoga classes, and the open scrubland across the street for off-leash dog walks. The expansive valley and mountain views, and the Pokémon Go Pokestop conveniently located at the RV park entrance (if you don’t know what that last part means, just ask Charlie). However, we are all ready to hit the road in March and explore new places again. We need to get back into the National Park Junior Ranger programs to augment my slacking-off roadschool curriculum. But before we start making our gradual way toward the East Coast, I’d like to share some photos from our time in the beautiful Coachella Valley, starting with some desert culture.
