After 2 days of cold rain, our little trailer began to shrink. Wet shoes were taking over the doorway and damp coats covered every chair back. Eau de wet dog didn’t help the atmosphere one bit. As it happens there was an enormous motorhome show happening in the next town so we decided to check out how the other half were living.
Believe me when I say a million dollar motorhome just can’t be believed. Marble floors, crystal chandeliers and on and on.
This one was modest but still out of our price range because it was new.
Failing to find edible food at the fairgrounds, we headed out in search of a decent lunch. We’d been told to try a Date Shake while here in Plam Springs, so when we saw the huge sign at Shields Date Garden, we figured it was time.
We had a delicious salad in their dining room, with you guessed it, dates on top. After lunch, we split their world famous date shake.
We got two more days of sun, followed by rain and more rain. They’re not equipped to deal with rain here in Palm Springs so there’s a lot of flooding.
We took a bus tour of the movie stars homes during a particularly wet day. The history of Hollywood royalty in Palm Springs is so fun and I’m a sucker for that kind of stuff.
It kept raining and raining and raining…you get the idea. The more it rained the smaller our trailer felt so yesterday we perused another big RV sale…and fell hook link and checkbook for a used Class A.
This RV is small by comparison to many we saw, but much roomier than our little trailer. It has a small electric fireplace I can’t wait to use.
Yes, that’s white upholstery…what were we thinking? We were thinking king size bed, fireplace, and more room. My husband is 6’4″ tall. Anything less than a king size bed is torture.
Our new to us RV should be ready to pick up by the end of the week and we can’t wait. It’s raining back home too but for some reason, it feels wetter when you’re on vacation in the desert.
Thanks for reading and have a great week.
