Jim and I had never ridden on Sun Country. Seems like there is a lot of that go to Florida, Mexico and California. I liked the fact that you could rent a movie to watch for $8.00, move up to first class for $142.00, and that you can order some food. I just wish there were some more foodie choices. Out of Minneapolis it is Terminal 2. It was alittle bit of a bumpy ride because of the weather to Palm Springs. There are those folks that are out of their seats a little too much. Lots of white-greay haired people with funky colored tennis shoes. (Probably Skeeters.) Many heading to Palm Springs or the Desert. The good part about Sun County is that you can change seats if you have a cougher next to you. The seats are roomy enough.
We decided that they should serve slices of pizza versus cheese burgers.
Why were we going to Palm Springs and Mexico? The reason was to stay with some of our friends who go there every winter. They have invited us many times. I had worried about being near the San Andres Fault. They do have small earth quakes.
Life in “A Gated Community” is more than I imagined. It is another whole social world. You usually start the morning off with natural springs water, exercise aerobics in the pool and hot tubs. Know people a lot older than us have gone for a walk in the desert, up the mountain, totally unafraid of snakes. There are poisonous snakes and wild prairie dogs. Then after aerobics, there is coffee clutch, golf volunteer work before going out to a hot spot for lunch. There is a full agenda of activities that could wear a 50-60 year old out.
There is mostly cactus. lemon, orange trees, lots of palm trees, and off course you don’t want to walk by those jumping cactus…They jumped into my leg.
Didn’t see any bugs or in sections. No road kill. A few cars for sale, cash, probably stolen. Washouts from rain do occur. Lots of mountains. Vegetables CHEAP.
There are so many planned activities that it a very different lift style.
Our friend Sharon made deluxe meals from Finish Pancakes with Mexican Flavoring and Mexican Sugar and lots of blueberries. She served carrot juicers from the processor each day. There was a variety of things in this drink. I lost 5 pounds by this healthy life style. I told my husband that he had better get on the scale. They ate carrot meat loaf one evening.
We went to a date farm one day, very interesting. Then another night we did eat date appetizers. Ever had a date shake? did you know that they make a stir fry with cactus?
Nineteen percent of the people suffer from some respiratory disorder in Palm Springs. Well that occurs from COPD, Emphysema, smoking, allergies. There do have sand storms once in awhile. It never happened when we were there.
Boy does the limited amount of water smell here! Too alkaline or something.
Our one day trip to Mexico was to this location:
Prescriptions are cheap. Why I do not know. Go over the border to get your teeth fixed, see an eye doctor and be badgered with sales. There was no gynecologist.
