Indio, Day Two

We watched the sun come up on a beautiful setting out the front window of the coach…

So we hopped on the Vespa and went searching for breakfast.  We found a little Cafe, Charlie’s, and had wonderful fresh fruit and vegetables and eggs…yum.  We headed south to check out the show grounds at Thermal.  They look fabulous.  Great stabling, some permanent, some tents.  The rings looked great as well, one big one under the lights.  We’ll have to climatize everyone to early sunsets and under the lights riding.  Alex will be the only one who has had that experience!

We spent the morning on the Vespa then headed back to the coach for lunch and an attempt at the golf course!!???  The course is a little chip and putt thingy with masses of water and water falls everywhere.  We thought a two ball rule would come into effect…lose two balls…carry on to the drop zone.  Oh my.  It’s amazing we came home with any balls left in our bags!!!  We had fun in the sun and a good laugh for the afternoon.

Of course being in the desert, surrounded by water, we had fresh fish for dinner.  Excellant, Fisherman’s Grill.

On the road today, headed to Escondido.  Set up the coach and then hopefully we can get to the stables later this afternoon.  Linds and Peter have done a great job holding down the fort at home.  Everyone will be ready to get on the truck a week from today… the count down is on!!!

Indio Day One

With a bit of a crazy drive through Phoenix to get to Desert West (accident on the 202) we picked up our misplaced keys, talked to John and clarified the fine points on the satellite operation, then…we’re on the road again.

We planned a short drive day for Monday and both of us were looking forward to some relax time in the sun.  It always takes so much work and organization to get away from home when you are in business for yourself.  Phoenix was busy with the kids, fun busy but still busy times.  I think we need to unwind a bit before the big push with the horses next week.

We arrived at Motorcoach Country Club…as I mentioned, pure indulgence.  Beautiful, green, sunny.  Normally we park the coach, unload the Vespa and head out to explore the area.  This is the first time we have ever just parked and sat in the sun and enjoyed the views.  We spent the afternoon sipping, munching, and reading.   We then headed over to the on site restaurant for a salad, then when the sun set, a quick trip to the hot tub.  We ended the day watching the twinkling lights reflected on the water in front of the coach.  Bizzare…all this in the middle of the desert…

Today is explore day…

The view out our front window...green oasis in the desert.

A walk around the "lake", the coach at the first tee.


The end of a very good day.
