The Summer flew by and its full on Fall here in the PNW. I've taken some photos to share with you of a cross country trip I made in late Summer. One of our stops was Palm Desert, it literally looks like a postcard in every direction. The Palm perfectly maintained. We had an authentic Mexican dinner complete with music then a quick nights stay at a 70's hotel. On our route we also stopped in San Antonio at the Hotel Havana. It's one of Liz Lambert's little gems that she has in Texas. The Restaurant Ocho that adjourns the hotel (right on the river walk) is beautiful and the southwestern food delicious! We also enjoyed stumptown coffee in the morning, a welcome reprieve for NW travelers. I'm looking forward to sharing more photos and some stories soon. thanks for stopping by gardenrooms, I've missed you!
