Monday, March 1st
Unlike our two other 9-hour travel days, it took half that time to drive from Las Vegas to Palm Springs. We arrived well before the appointed check-in time, so we went to Trader Joe's for groceries and some Two-Buck-Chuck.
The condo owner was putting cleaning supplies in her trunk when we rolled up. She invited us to pull into the two car garage, gave us a tour and orientation before leaving us to our month long home-away-from home. It's quite perfect, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, lovely, open living space, a well outfitted, little kitchen and a great patio. The pool is just a stones throw away. We moved in, played house, and celebrated our arrival with a bottle of champagne.
