After all the adventures of the first part of the trip, we needed some time to relax! We spent the day in Palm Springs, where the most exciting part of the morning was Daniel chasing James with the squirt gun. James wanted to escape and yet kept putting himself in the line of fire… hmmm. Tom enjoyed pouring water in the pool.
On our way out of town, we stopped at the Palm Springs Aerial Tram, which revolves completely around as it ascends 2 1/2 miles from the desert to Mt San Jacinto State Park. Tom and Charlotte were each a little nervous as the tram swayed passing the towers, but both did fine.
En route to Los Angeles, we stopped at the dinosaurs at Cabezon. For the Pee Wee Hermann fans out there, “tell ‘em LARGE MARGE sent ya!”
