A Visit with Greg in Palm Springs




As I've probably already mentioned, Greg Grosh has moved from Austin to Palm Springs, California. Now that he isn't doing any work for Pervasive, there was really nothing keeping him in Austin, so he thought that the mecca of Palm Springs might be just the ticket. Earlier in this album, you've seen the pictures I took when I was out here last November helping Greg look at homes. While he didn't buy the house I thought he would, the one he got was certainly a stunner.

Greg has been after Fred and I to come out and visit, so we decided to use our summer vacation to finally make the trip. Unlike most of our other trips (except the ones to Florida), all I needed to do was arrange for the airfare- we'd be staying with Greg and using one of his cars as necessary. That made it easy.

Anyway, we got all the plans in place, and on the evening of Friday, the 17th of June, Fred and I hopped a plane for Palm Springs.

Coming back on Sunday, June 26th, we collected our car from long-term parking and were home in time for dinner. It was a really great trip, and I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures of it.


Using the Master Index

We took hundreds of pictures and movies while in Palm Springs, so I have organized this trip into an album page for each day. There are nine of these pages, and you can jump to any one of them using the Master Index below simply by clicking on one of the dates.

We also did a lot on each day, so I have further organized these album pages into a section for each specific place we visited or thing we did. If you wish, you may jump to a specific activity on a specific day simply by clicking on one of the activity links that are indented underneath each date.

If you choose one of the date links, you will be positioned at the top of the album page for that date. There, you can use any navigation technique you wish to read the narrative and look at the pictures that interest you. Additionally, the top and bottom of each album page have links that you can use to navigate to a prior or subsequent day within the Hawaii trip. There is also a link you can use to return to the master index below. Finally, you will also find a set of links at the top of each page that duplicate the function of the activity links below, enabling you to move around the page activity by activity. (At the end of each activity section there is also a link to take you back to the top of that daily page.)

When you are done looking at our Palm Springs trip, use one of the links to return to this master index and then use the link at the top of the master index to jump to the top of this index page. There you will find links enabling you to move forward or backward through the photo album, as well as a link to take you to the index for this year.

We hope you enjoy looking at the pictures. To access the master index, please click HERE.
