We arrived on Saturday and visited Sunnylands for a tour. It was amazing! I had no idea about this place, surrounded by a pink wall that goes on for miles. We had to order the tickets a month in advance. The last eight presidents, plus many celebrities and world leaders, stay here for retreats.
It was owned by the Annenbergs until Leanore Annenberg passed away in 2009.
This is a mayan fountain outside the main house.
The house is a quite large, mid century modern structure. We were not allowed to take pictures inside. The walls are covered with the artwork of major Impressionist artists. They are now just duplicates as the Annenberg's art collection was given to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The history of the house was incredible. We loved our tour.
On Sunday, we went to brunch and then walked around downtown Palm Springs. We came across this strange yard.
We stopped at a bar on the main drag and now we know why it is called the main "drag".
Sunday night we went out to dinner at the beautiful La Quinta resort. We had such a nice relaxing time.
