Notice the little green string under our "Hummer"???
We've been here in Indio for the last 10 days and we're ready to pull out in the morning. I'd say the real reason we stayed this long was the weather...that is the weather up north.Not that it's changed all that much but we're going for it anyway. Our stay in Indio allowed us to take in another street market in Desert Palms. About 2 years ago we took in our first market there and really enjoyed it so we're making it a must do when in the area. I found one of those "Fire in a Can (although the one I bought was called an "urn") that I've been wanting for quite some time. It stands about a foot high, 10 inches square, and has a fire
pit with volcanic rock that run off of a propane tank. This will be useful when we want to just sit outside while watching the stars and enjoy a small fire at our feet. During our stay we also enjoyed taking a few long walks, riding our bikes in the park, shopping at one of our favorite Mexican grocery stores, and finding a new (to us) casino. The Fantasy Casino is really a very nice casino, as far as casino's go. Good food in anyone of the 4 restaurants, very attractive, clean, not too smokey (and I'm a nut over that...), and the machines seem to be some what "loose". I saw one lady win $1,000 on a penny machine and quite afew winning
into the one and two hundred areas. Louise was even at $230 early on. At 6pm we were able to sign up for their "club card". Their deal was; for us to put in $20, once or if that was used up, you would push a button with your card in the slot, and you would be credited $50. You couldn't take that $50 directly out, but what ever winnings you made you could draw out. I pulled out $53 gross, our $33 and Louise came back with just over $100...we had a great dinner and a good time and we still have a little of our money left.
