Where are we today ?
Did we have great night last night? You betcha, cool enough for a great night's sleep with the windows open a bit = perfect!
The weather here is kinda different, Desert Hot Springs is only a short drive from Palm Springs but a higher elevation, and a bit further from the mountains. So we don't get too much flooding, and too much weird weather (my opinion of course) We just get to look at it in the distance.
This morning can see the San Jacinto mountain peak from out site. Elevation over 10,000 feet. The fog and smog has lifted and we can now see snow on the peaks.
Thats about as much snow as we would like to see. Where we are about 900 feet above sea level suits us just fine!
We enjoyed some nice sunny weather off and on, got a couple walkabouts the resort and chatted with a few people here and there.
|nice day to walkabout|
Hey we saw snow in the distance,
just the way we like it, far away...
|snow in the mountains is good|
Then after lunch we drove around the corner to Catalina Spa Resort to visit a couple friends that we knew were there. First couple we stopped by was Joe and Betty. We only met a couple weeks ago, (fellow bloggers). Such a supper couple. Unannounced we stopped by for a short nice visit, then let them head off to their commitments and we on to ours.
Next visit at Catalina Spa was to drop by and visit Jim and Sharon from Alberta, that we last saw in Quartzsite. Had a nice short visit and caught up with them again.
Back home we got together with a few friends here from Ontario (8 of us altogether) and enjoyed a very nice social hour. Two couples are on the road tomorrow so was a nice final get together, and probably meet up again soon on down the road.

Pork Stroganoff is a very tasty meal that we enjoy, check out the recipe here if you like. And we added the Acorn squash too, one of our favourites.
