Girls Looking for Pearls – Joshua Tree & Borrego Springs!

Sandra and I headed out taking as many back roads as we could… and so ready for some “planned spontaneity!”

  • 1st Stop – Temecula Olive Oil Company where we had an olive oil and flavored vinegar pairing – YUMMY!
  • 2nd Stop – Idyllwild for lunch – more YUMMY!

We stayed 2 nights at the Caravan House Airbnb – total bohemian vibe – and short walking distance to town.

Day 3 – we headed off for 2 nights at Rams Hill in Borrego Springs – taking in the humongus metal sculptures farthest from us on our way in.

Day 4 – more exploring to see sculptures and massages at La Casa Del Zorro – MMMM! AAAHHH!

Day 5 – heading home

  • 1st Stop – Christmas Circle where we just happened to stumble upon the Farmers Market!
  • 2nd Stop – Dudleys for their YUMMY bread.
  • 3rd Stop – Julian for lunch and a stroll through town.

Stay Tuned…for more Girls Looking For Pearls…Sedona here we come! 🙂

We had a FUN & fabulous time with all the festivities happening for Día de Muertos! 😊

  • We don’t usually do tours but this one was great! The company is A Closer Look Tours. And our guide Eric has a B & B in Guanajuato plus does custom trips. He treated us to a Mezcal tasting and served us lunch there too!
