The path to sunshine!

After an exhausting and amazing day in San Francisco we awoke to rainy, cold (13C) and windy weather and we decided that enough was enough-6 days of cold on our vacation was more than any human could handle-we were heading to heat. We jumped on the Mac and looked for the hottest locale in the vicinity and there we spotted the motherland-Palm Springs-38C!!! We drove so fast out of the city I am sure we just looked like a streak of lightening!
The drive from San Fran to Palm Springs took about 6 hours through some of the craziest dessert terrain we have ever seen. We passed groves of apricot and almond trees, acres and acres of dusty fields crying out for a faint taste of rain. The temperature was consistently going up and up and much to our cheer, our fleeces, sweaters and myriads of layers were able to be peeled off!
We hit Palm Springs at 4pm to a beautiful 27C! Due to our coupon book, we got a hotel for $47.00 a night about 40 minutes walk from downtown-sweet pool and clean hotel-you can’t ask for anymore! Within an hour I realized that I was head over heels in love with Palm Springs and it is an affair I am pursuing today! Yes- we are looking for property because if there is one wish I have for this life it is to be warm and believe me, Palm Springs is warm!!
