Tuesday, February 10 - We met fellow bloggers, Paulette and Rick, this morning at the famous Sherman's Deli and Bakery in downtown Palm Springs, CA. Although he doesn't write a blog, but he is a star in one, Rylie, their dog joined us. He was so well behaved lying under the table, we didn't know he was there. What a sweetie!

We enjoyed breakfast and tons of great conversation and laughs for over an hour with this nice couple. We've followed there blog for such a long time, it's just like knowing them. They winter in Palm Springs, so who knows, maybe we'll see them again. (Marsha had her camera but totally forgot to get a picture. Bad girl!)

After breakfast, we headed to downtown Palm Springs to stroll among the shops and do a little shopping. Palm Springs is known as a  desert resort city.

Surprisingly, prices are very reasonable in this expensive California tourist town.

Now this is what every city should offer.

Palm Springs is famous for its "Walk of Stars." Many Hollywood Stars who lived, loved and played in Palm Springs are on the “Walk of Stars.”

There is even a bronze statue of Palm Springs’ one time mayor, Sonny Bono. This must have been when he was very young.

Sonny is on the right.

This is Lucille Ball.

Little did we know that the famous "Forever Marilyn," the three-story-tall sculpture, was dismantled and moved to New Jersey. This was one statue we both wanted to see. While walking around the town, we did find this statue of Marilyn. Not exactly like the “Forever Marilyn,” but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

We even found a few items to take back to the RV. Everyone needs a Palm Springs T-shirt, don't they?

That was it for today. Tomorrow we plan on being back on the hiking trail - must work off that delicious breakfast - so stop back and see where we explore.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great day!
