California - Here We Come!

We picked a great week to leave Texas - highs in the 40's and lows in the 20's! Bob has to present at a conference in Palm Desert CA and it sounded good to me.The airport is like the one in Hawaii - outdoor. I love that! It makes you feel very tropical. The picture below is of the area inside security - where some of the gates are located. There was even a playground for children. How wonderful that would be while waiting in the airport with the little ones.
Here we are at our hotel, the Desert Springs Marriott. We were given a room with a view of the parking lot and I persuaded Bob to ask for a change. We are both so glad we did. We now have a view worth sitting on the balcony for!

This is the view from our balcony.

Tonight we just wandered in to Palm Springs for dinner and walked along the main street. I took a few pictures and will post them tomorrow.

That looks wonderful. I feel like we may have stayed at the hotel once. It sounds familiar. Hope you have a great time in Palm Springs. Think of me when you are enjoying the nice weather. The high here today is going to be 10 degrees. Jealous aren't you?!
