For some of you this is a day early, for those on the other side of the world it’s right on time. We decided to go out to dinner (a rarity for us) to celebrate our love. However, to avoid the crowds we went out on February 13.
We chose Arnold Palmer’s Restaurant in La Quinta. Although Arnie as been dead a couple of years, the restaurant continues the tradition of serving many of his favorite dishes and some fantastic new ones created by their excellent chef. We began with bacon/fig skewers and tomato burrata salad, then progressed to sea bass with forbidden rice. Both were accompanied by a wonderful malbec wine. Dessert was butter cake surrounded by fresh berries and whipped cream accompanied by a glass of port. Each dish exceeded our expectations! What a fine evening.
Our daily walks continue to be close to “home.” There are beautiful desert mountains
and some interesting flowers that bloom a little more each day despite the lack of rain.
Morning doves sing to us every morning.
The reflections in the many ponds around our complex are stunning.
What a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day and to spend the month of February.
