California Vacation Part 6 – LaQuinta, CA

Saving the best for last, we spent the last few days of our vacation visiting our friend near Palm Springs. This was the more relaxing part of our vacation. The desert is quiet, beautiful and smells like flowers.

Check out her backyard.

Doesn’t it look heavenly?

This is Barkley, the guard dog.

I’ve never really been a fan of smaller breed dogs, but dachshunds are the exception. This little guy is quite a character.

3000 miles from home and the Easter Bunny still found us!

One of the many things I love about this area is the mid-century architecture.

This is where Elvis and Pricilla spent their honeymoon. Having also been to Graceland, I’m always amazed at how modest Elvis’s homes were, considering his fame and fortune.

After a few days in the desert, we ran out of vacation time and had to get back on a plane and back to work. Almost literally – we left mid afternoon and got home at 1:00 am. I slept for a few hours, and then I was back at my desk. It was good to be home but I’m already looking forward to our next California adventure.
