Last Tuesday my sweetheart and I "vacated" to Palm Springs for the first time (along with six close friends). Needless-to-say, a good time was had by all. Sun, warm weather, delicious food, hikes, bike rides, swimming, great conversations . . . I am now totally relaxed. There were so many photo opportunities - everything looked new and amazing to me. The desert is enchanting.
Joshua Tree National Park - a rock wonderland

The pool was equally captivating. We flew home on Sunday to Seattle's stormy weather . . . sigh. Leaves that were barely opening when we left were in full bloom - green is everywhere. But since it's still raining and cool, I'll hold this image close until our summer begins.
