We’ve been having a great time at Thousand Trails Palm Springs (which is actually in Palm Desert, CA). The park is nice, close to shopping and attractions. We had been concerned about getting in the sites here, lots of date palm trees, but it wasn’t that bad.. Of course it helped that the park was fairly empty when we arrived so we had a little extra wiggle room.
Our friends have all made it here too, a total of 11 in our group. We ladies go walking most mornings and we all get together in the evenings. It’s been a fun time! Last Thursday Dave & Anne (from England) and Dave & I went to the Villagefest in Palm Springs. The website explains it this way: Villagefest on Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs every Thursday. Arts, crafts, farmers' market, music and entertainment, shopping. Fun!! After wandering through the booths we had dinner at a local restaurant. A very nice evening!

Friday Dave & I decided to take a drive over by Borrego Springs, CA to check out a boondocking area. It was about an hour drive that passed by the Salton Sea. We found a few places that would be fun to camp at and plan to stay in that area sometime this winter. As we drove into the town of Borrego Springs we saw a unique airplane, a V-22 Osprey. It’s a military plane that can take off and land like a helicopter but then the engines rotate so the props work like a regular prop plane. Anyway, it was a fun day just out seeing a little more of the area!
