Hello Palm Desert

Sat, July 28, 2018

With the sale of our Mill Valley home last month, our focus shifted to our condo in Palm Desert, CA where construction has just been completed.

Carol and I drove down to the Coachella Valley earlier this week to close our purchase and it was just in time for some record heat.  How much?  Well, the record high for Palm Springs for July 23 had been 116F but today we enjoyed a new record high of 119F.  Never been in heat like that before.  Let’s just say it felt like a blast furnace.

The valley contains the resort cities of Palm Springs and Palm Desert, as well as Rancho Mirage, Indio, La Quinta, Indian Wells and Cathedral City altogether with a population of almost 500,000 in April, declining to around 200,000 in July and rising to around 800,000 by January.  It sure was easy getting around this time of year 🙂

Our condo is a three bedroom, three bath unit in The Retreat development overlooking the Desert Willow golf course.  Here’s our building and our unit is on the second floor.

Two more pics for you.  First up is the living room with the pocket glass doors that slide open.  We plan to spend a lot of time outside on the deck, weather permitting LOL.

And finally a snap of the kitchen.  Not a good perspective but it’s a bit nicer than this picture might suggest.
