SO ....after the conference Al and I stopped to see Queen Califas Magic Circle designed by Niki de Saint Phalle . It was closed fr renovation but we could see it pretty well thru the fence.
Next we drove to Palm desert where Al's Aunt Louise lives- it is another world! She loves her life there- and we loved seeing her- she is the best!
There are lots of fancy shops and galleries right outside her door-
After a couple nights there we went to Laguna Beach- lots of surfers and art and great food!
It was a total blast! Thanks for reading.
