TRINA TURK is one of my favorite designers. So, yes, of course I had to stop in to her retail shop in downtown Palm Springs. The shop blends well with the vibe of the classic mid-century modern architecture of Palm Springs. If you are interested in architecture, this is a must see city.
This photo I took is interesting with the images of palm trees reflecting off the glass and chest of the male mannequin..kind of artsy!
This was my purchase: One colorful gauzy scarf and vivid blue silk blouse. Ahhhh, Trina!
Walking around town I came across this VERY LARGE statue of Marilyn Monroe...(hmmm...why??)
( Ha ha, nice spot for the sign!!)
Also in Palm Springs we took a Segway tour through town. Our first time ever on the machines and it was so much fun!! It was a great way to get back near the homes of celebrities and zip from one edge of town to the other......
Point Lobos is a park in California just south of Carmel, which is a true treasure. If you are in the area it is a visit you must make!! Gorgeous scenery of the coastline and an other worldly cypress tree grove. And speaking of...here are a few snapshots of those gorgeous trees:
I hope your Easter holiday was wonderful! We had an enjoyable celebration in our home with our beloved family. What fun it was to share a few hours together, to eat, drink, and relive memories. I loved every moment and feel so blessed.
Our time in Carmel was magical! What a special town...so quaint...such charming architecture...lovely landscapes...and just steps away from the most beautiful sand beach. Every morning we enjoyed a stroll into town for coffee and pastry, and then to the beach for a walk along the water. For a week we lived a charmed Carmel life!!
An abundance of natural beauty infused us everyday.
How fortunate we were to have Reid and Hannah share some time with us here!!
We explored along the famous 7 mile drive, stopping to take pictures. Here's Bryan in a cheesy photo-op with the Lone Cypress:
We rented a fantastic home with an enclosed courtyard. Each night we were able to open a wall of glass to the garden, surrounding us with hints of pine, sea and flowers. And sounds of the mourning dove.
