A Quiet Walk along the Avenues of Palm Springs

Overcast skies and the threat of rain left us local to our hotel as we simply took in some of the culture with simple walks down the avenues of Palm Springs. The days on the avenues are built for people who spend money as the shops were quite unique in the items they carried along with the cost. Restaurants of quality serving foods that make your eyes water they are so good seem to going on for an eternity. I didn’t notice one fast food restaurant anywhere in sight. The nights on the avenues offer the delight of those seeking to stop and have a beer, mixed drink or local wine as the night life swings into action.

For us the simple action of observation was enough though we absolutely did stop for lunch. My camera finally saw some action as was intrigued by many of the sights we took in along the way. I am not one to be to acquainted with the arts but couldn’t stop trying to read the names on the stars on the sidewalk.

Today should bring about some much needed sunshine and we will make plans to get out and see a little more of the nature of the area.

  2. These photos are amazing – the streets seem perfect for a casual stroll when you have all the time in the world. And even though it was cloudy, the scenery is vibrant and colourful. Looks like a great place to vacation.

    • The great thing about it is that I am actually walking in a T-shirt and it is not raining. I haven’t been able to do that since last September. Woo Hoo. It feels like my soul has been renewed.
