So now we’re headed back after our two months away, and I’m back to rain and wind in Portland. I feel cold and chilled, but this too will pass. Whenever I think of our vacation, the warmth and the sunshine is front and center. My husband and I are both looking forward to returning home and spending time with our family and friends, repairing the damage done by the deer in our yard (Did I say looking forward to that?), and settling back into our Island life. I know that more than ever, I will be hiking, biking, sailing, and just enjoying my time spent in the outdoors and nature. Hopefully the sun will cooperate and it will remind me of our sunny, warm time in the desert. Our plants may not resemble the flora of the desert, but I certainly have more ideas for the grasses in our backyard.



And most of all, we’ll be going through a difficult “DE-WINE INTERVENTION”, when we walk into our first BC Liquor Store and get shocked by the insane cost of a mediocre California ZIN!


Many of you have had some extended holiday time in the desert. Perhaps some of you actually own a condo, house, or park model in the desert around Palm Springs or Phoenix. Share some of your experiences and highlights in the COMMENT SECTION below. Let us know your favorite months in the sunshine and why you choose those particular months. And remember, you can pass these EXTENDED VACATIONS IN THE SUNSHINE blog installments by forwarding this link to other SNOW BIRDS:
