Real Life - Flamingos - PINK ONES!
Pulling up to my hotel in Palm Springs last week, I looked to my right and what, to my wandering eyes, did appear? PINK FLAMINGOS! Okay, so I'm over 50- and no, I have NEVER seen a real life Pink Flamingo!
I was Ubering to the hotel with another girl who flew in with me for our coaching conference and I was a little embarrased but, I honestly think a 'little girl squeal' came out of me - I couldn't help myself! By the time we arrived to the door of the hotel, I had justified my excitement by asking the other Uber rider if she had ever seen them and she also agreed that she too, was mesmerized - and had never seen a live one! The Uber driver confirmed that when she moved there, it was also her 'first time' seeing them as well! She told us that this was the only place in Palm Springs that had them.
When I arrived to the front desk, I requested a room with a view of the lagoon! Momentarily saddened, I found that the front lagoon was the only one that had the Flamingos BUT, the one that my room overlooked had plenty of mallards, geese and ducks! I quickly discovered that my room (on the first floor), butted up against the lagoon so, sitting on my balcony, the ducks would swim right up to the edge!
When I wasn't in class, I thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of my surroundings and the nature that existed all around me. Of course, I had to sneak back to the front lagoon to snap 100 shots of those gorgeous Pink Flamingos before I left Palm Springs!
*This one is not my contest entry - I just had to share my balcony shot too!
