Picture this. I'm happily tucking into a Saturday breakfast repast of savory Quiche Lorraine and French-press coffee at brand-new cafe, Il Sogno, overlooking Palm Desert's scenic boulevard El Paseo when I spy a familiar face approach the outside bistro tables. "Surely that can't be Connie Townsen...

Until today, I'd given my hometown of La Quinta short shrift in my autumnal quest to explore Coachella Valley's plethora of hiking trails. A few days ago, Sue, aka The Energizer Bunny, and I crossed off the trails crisscrossing the Rancho Mirage foothills on my hiking to-do list, adding them to t...

Rancho Mirage's Art Affaire, the last major art festival of the year here in the Palm Springs desert takes place this weekend, November 14-15. The 9th annual event is held in Whitewater Park, a gem-of-a-park with appealing contours and gorgeous mountain vistas of the nearby San Jacinto Mountains....

After this morning's early-morning hike along the Hopalong Cassidy Trail above Palm Desert, Marianne and I sipped coffee on the beautiful boulevard and then window-shopped the boutiqu...

I realized with a start that Saturday-morning breakfast at Panera Bread in La Quinta has become de rigueur for my husband and me. The warm ambiance, cheerful service and yummy fare are constants in an inconstant world and I am instantly cheered upon crossing the welcoming threshold. This morning ...

October could easily contend for the perfect-month award here in the Palm Springs desert. If not for the month-long reseeding of lawns and golf courses—and the attendant ubiquity of forlorn expanses of brown—the days and evenings are pitch-perfect for eating and entertaining al fresco, enjoying t...

La Quinta's Art Under the Umbrellas decisively served notice today that the season has indeed begun. Under blazing bue skies and 90° temps, it is hard to believe other states have seemingly bypassed autumn for winter weather. Here in the east end of the Coachella Valley, I can see the recent inf...

    This morning, my husband, Kirk, and I enjoyed the season's debut of the La Quinta Farmers' Market, now commencing its second year in the streets of Old Town. You couldn't ask for a more appealing backdrop for a food-and-flowers market than the Spanish Colonial architecture of Old Town. The p...
