Alby and I took our long morning walk today alone while Chris and Jamie hung back having a relaxing Sunday with the newspaper. One of the many reasons I love these walks with Alby is that he serves as both a tour guide showing me all the homes of the stars, but also because since he has a “photo a day” journal, he always takes me to spots that will provide interesting images. We’ve been averaging 5 miles each morning, and it’s such a great way to start the day… especially since it’s about the ONLY thing we did!
Alby took me over to this really cool middle school (mid-century modern with outdoor “halls”) and I took this shot of him while he was snapping away to get his own daily photo. Later we met up with some old friends from LA who were also in Palm Springs for the weekend, and then lounged by the pool before heading to the airport.
Overall it was a truly wonderful and relaxing vacation, and we are so fortunate to have Chris and Alby as friends — there aren’t that many people you can spend 3 full days with and leave so happy. But we’re also excited to get home and see Merlin again as well. Even if it is still a touch cold in Minnesota…
Tomorrow, I will post a full photo set from the trip … and I’ll pick up OUR NEW PUPPY. Eeep!
