My partner and I just returned from Joshua Tree National Park. We camped two nights at Jumbo Rocks campground, book-ended by one night each at a hotel and a B&B. All the joshua trees and flowers were in bloom, and we had a great time hiking through desert canyons and scrabbling over boulders. The B&B, Roughley Manor, was a pleasant alternative to a hotel and served a delicious breakfast.
Now I’m totally itchy from sunburn and the dry weather. I used SPF 70!! but alas did not re-apply often enough on our 6 hour hike from Cottonwood Oasis to Lost Palms Oasis and back.
On the craft front, I got kind of bored again with Babette but will probably pick it up again soon. Meanwhile I have plans to knit Berrocco’s Brea Bag. I have a hankering for bags. Recently I bought this bag by Angry Little Girls (formerly Angry Little Asian Girls) from a local store. My partner is not so crazy about that one, but I love it and carry it with me all the time.
