Desert Springs 2012

The Beautiful California Desert

February 15-25, 2012

First, three days preparation at Marriott's Newport Coast Villas!


That beautiful view up the California Coast.

  Love the Mediterranean architecture.  Looks and feels a lot like the coast of Spain or Italy.

  Lots of room and a gorgeous view.

  King bedroom (one of two).

 Great kitchen and dining area.

  La Vista -- the pool bar and restaurant.

  Russ and Nancy at La Vista for lunch.

Another week at our timeshare at Marriott's Desert Springs I. 

A beautiful view of the Santa Rosa, San Jacinto, and San Gorgonio mountains.

  View from our Villa 9411, Building G toward the golf course and the mountains.

  Nancy at the Oasis Pool and Grill.

  The Oasis.

  Same spot, twin pics.

  Tommy Bahama's on El Paseo in Palm Desert.

  New color scheme for Desert springs Villas.  We like it. (About half done.)

  Nancy enjoying the pool at the J.W. Marriott Desert Springs.

  The hotel reflected in the huge lagoon.

  Former site of our favorite restaurant, "Tuscany."  It's closed -- to become a kid water park. (Dumb!)
