Family Getaway to Rancho Mirage

Hello everyone.  My brain is on overload from "writing my sock tutorial" so I thought I'd take a short break and just post some fun pictures.  Our family took a short getaway to Rancho Mirage recently.  It's just next to Palm Springs and about 100 miles from our home.

 Enjoy the photos.......

This is a windfarm along Highway 10 on the way to Rancho Mirage

Beautiful palm trees against the afternoon sky......

A tall lone majestic palm.......

The view out of the kitchen window........

The ever warming sun behind a palm.......

The golf course view outside our condo door......we don't golf :(...can you see the snow on top of the mountain?

My little grandson swimming in the pool.......

More mountains and palm trees....

We had such a fun time with all the family being present.  I'll post Part II of the sick (oops, I meant socks!) tutorial on Sunday. Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Happy hearts,

Oops, I almost forgot that I'm linking up with Happy Friday


  1. I always love seeing your photos of palm trees. They make everywhere look so glamorous. Happy Valentines.

  2. Beautiful photos. It sounds like you had a fantastic time with all the family. I have blue sky, pool and palm tree envy! Happy Valentine's Day. x

  3. Blue, blue skies...just what we need to cheer us up here in grey old UK!
    Thanks for joining in with Happy Friday once again! x

  4. Lovely photos - and no shortage of palm tress on your trip!

  5. It all looks lovely and not so different from our scenery around here, but we don´t have palm trees as tall as that, and we certainly won´t be getting in the pool for another few months, even if the sun is shining. Enjoy your break. Kate x

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog, Pat! Your beautiful photos are making me want for spring. I see you are a knitter---my daughter knits the most wonderful wool socks for winter. I used to knit, but no longer do. Have a great Valentine's Day. ♥

  7. Lovely photos, especially of the snow far away, with palm trees in the foreground. Happy Valentines Day!

  8. Warm and beautiful palm trees near with a snowy mountain top in the beautiful!

  9. What beautiful photo's, I love the purity of the colours, it's lovely to have a break with family.
