My Winter GetawayPosted: July 29, 2009 | Author: Liz | Filed under: Adventures with Friends, My Life | Leave a comment »
My blog has been quiet lately but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been up to much! I’m hoping to be able to fill you in now that Liz has a little more time to spend helping me out with my blogging again.
This winter, when Noah was about a month old, I went on a mini-vacation to Palm Springs. Here I am with my traveling companion, Ken. He is Liz’s father-in-law and we have many memories of good times together when I lived in England. I used to snuggle up with him in front of the fire, chase his cats…ah, those were some wonderful times!
Once in the car, I ride shotgun, of course:
I like to get settled in and comfortable. Luckily Ken is very obliging:
At rest stops, I get in the driver’s seat to keep an eye on things:
And here I am at our lodgings, the Caliente Tropics Resort.
They allow dogs there, so it was a great choice. Liz says the rooms are ok, and the pool was very nice. I spent most of my time just sleeping in the a/c, and venturing out for walks once night fell. It is very warm in Palm Springs, you know.
On our way back home, we drove through the Anza-Borrego desert. Here I am in Borrego Springs. Everyone else had lunch; all I got was a potty break!
It was wildflower season and we wanted to have a look at the flowers in bloom. I don’t see any! Oh wait, is that one under my paw?
That’s about all we found. A slight disappointment, but still it was a beautiful place:
On our way home, we stopped for a treat in the mountain town of Julian:
Is that an apple pie I smell in there?? Yum!
