Finally, the SUN came back!

After about 5 days of nothing but dense clouds and too much rain, the Sun was out this morning!  It was very welcome!   Made up feel much better.  Judy was off for pool exercise, and I got my cleaning stuff out to clean up the RV exterior and the Jeep, which filled up my morning!

We made the trip into Palm Spring this afternoon only to find a few of the local roads still not open from the big floods. 

One nice surprise this morning, was looking over at the mountains as I walked out the door, and the mountains were full of snow!  


We did a tour around Palm Springs this afternoon, as it turned into a beautiful afternoon.  We ended up taking a ride up highway 74, that will take you up to Idylwylde.  We only drove up a few miles to get a look back at Palm Springs from up high… it worked!


You can see quite a bit of snow in this shot, those mountains are about 50 miles away!


Here is a portion of Palm Springs.


Judy has been looking for over a year now for a Mountain Goat, and thought she had one here today, but this was just a statute… looks real though…


Today was Thursday, and it is the weekly market in Palm Springs, so we decided to take in the market and have a nice pre Christmas Diner out!  We enjoyed a very nice meal at “The Falls”.  It is the upper deck in this picture, and we were sitting on the far left of the picture.


We really enjoyed dinner, and our waitress, Desiree, took this pic for us.  Now check this out!

If you look to my right at the empty chair, imagine John Travolta, and his Mother having dinner there!  They did and our waitress served them.  What a claim to fame!


The market was full of people. 


This end table has a big fire burning while you eat dinner… kind of neat!


On the way home, we drove through a nice area of Palm Springs where everyone had their Christmas lights going…   just to get you all in the Spirit!


Ok, so this one was a little over the top…(Griswold's)


All in all, a great day, and sure was nice to have the weather back!

Till tomorrow…
