January 11 to 21, 2009 - Desert Hot Springs, CA

We thought we were going one mile to WHR Indian Waters but once we got there they didn't have our reservation down.  After a search in the office they found our reservation was at WHR Desert Pools.  We know how it happened.  That meant we drove to Desert Hot Springs and camped at WHR Desert Pools after 29 miles.  We were last here in March 2007.

We got a nice, quiet 50AMP full hookup site instead of the 30AMP water and electric site we would have had at Indian Waters.  But Diane's parents, Gregg and Rosalie, were at Indian Waters so we were all going to be doing a lot of driving.

We went to the ice cream social at 2PM and this woman, who sat close to us, won the free banana split.  She did eat it all.

On the 13th we had our carpets cleaned and Diane's sister Kimberly and her husband Dennis paid the bill as a Christmas present.  Thanks!  Roger did a wonderful job.

January 14th we went to Joshua Tree National Park

January 16th we drove to the Salton Sea

We had lots of birds at our feeder but didn't get many photos.

But Evita kept a good watch.

One day Diane's aunt Claire came over from the LA area, where she just moved.  We helped her do some shopping and visited.  She ended up with a great deal on a GPS unit and it got her home.

We ended up eating out with Gregg and Rosalie a bunch, with some meals in.  We ate at the Pak Inn in Indio multiple times, the Augustine Casino, Red Robin, Islands and added El Matador in Desert Hot Springs and Thai Palms in Desert Hot Springs to the restaurant list.

Now we are off to Quartzsite and will not see Gregg and Rosalie until April or later.
