La Quinta, California: More friends we have not been able to see for nearly a year, Debbie & Mark, are getting ready to return to their summer home. Dave and Mark ran track and cross-country together in high school and have remained friends all these years (and that is a lot of years). We played golf together last week at our course and today we played together at Eagle Falls. With so many snowbirds flocking north, it is easy to book a tee time, and green fees are greatly reduced.
Even though the ball doesn't always go where we wish, we had a very good day - we were together!
Long way to the green from here! Pretty view of the Chocolate Mountains and a noisy "brook" for ambience.
Pretty pink flowers were everywhere on the course. Anyone know the name of this plant? Please comment below.
No one went in the water on this hole. Can't say that about every hole, however. Happily, all four of us are big drivers. Yep, even me.
We finished our round at 2p, so went to late lunch/early dinner at Fisherman's. They have a huge outdoor dining space and were not busy at all in the middle of the afternoon. Fish tacos, of course.
After a round of golf, the tacos were devoured!
More visitors are expected. Until my next update, I remain, your over-par correspondent.
Primrose came to mind. Quick search turned up a variety of names, one being pink evening primrose . . . go figure.
In Texas, where they grow wild and fill huge fields, evening primroses are called buttercups.
