Palm Springs - Part 6

I had mentioned that Palm Springs had palm trees.  For a gal that has never been any where or seen anything, these trees were a sight that I never tired of.  They were everywhere.

Another sight that caught our eyes were these life sized (?) dinosaurs on the side of the highway on the way to the outlet malls.
They looked friendly enough so we thought that we would get a closer look.

Look at the teeth on this baby!

Johnnie-Girl was brave enough to sit on one of its toes while he was standing still.

This one stood still long enough for a family with young children to picnic under his belly.  Palm Springs kids must eat nails for breakfast to make them so tough!

A few more views of the backyard at the vacation home.  Here is the BBQ area just off of the kitchen eating area.  My hubby prepared many dinners on the large gas BBQ.  Plenty of room to eat outside at tables.

A terrific fire pit with swivel rocking chairs encircling it.

Another covered eating area ... just because.
And more of the pool area showing different fountain displays.

Oh how we enjoyed the pool ... and so private.  I don't think that any of the neighbours could see us.

Any finally, this looks like a tropical paradise, but this beautiful oasis is simply the path along the side of the house to one of the restrooms.  This way you can step right from outside into your shower without traipsing through the whole house with your wet bathing suit.  You have to think of these things you know!
