Hiking Club for my Women Writers!

Those who know me know that I love hiking! Starting in March I am starting a hiking club. For the month of March we are meeting each Tuesday morning at 8 am at the top of the cove in La Quinta. Email me or call me if you need directions. Please bring water and unfortunately no dogs are welcome on the Tuesday hikes. If you are interested in a dog hike let me know as I do hike with Courtney and Bruno, but these hikes are women only! Park at the top of the cove in the dirt lot and we will venture off by 8:15 in the morning. All levels of fitness are welcome. Florence, from my Thursday morning class has graciously offered to lead our first hike in March.

February brings beautiful weather and many new wonderful women have joined our workshops! I wanted to remind you of our fun Friday mini-workshos, they are from 10:30-12 and then lunch afterwards for those of you who would like to go out!
Saturday, February 7th at the Gardens in El Paseo is a benefit for the group I am a member of called The Girlfriend Factor. It is a great organization that supports women and education, two things I support! Check out their website at
I am currently working on our next luncheon, looks like late March will be our next one!
Those of you who attended our luncheon know what a wonderful and beautiful event that was! We had around 30 wonderful women in attendance and a great time had by all! I will get some pictures online (as soon as I can figure out how!)
I have been busy bike riding all over La Quinta and kayaking at Lake Cahuilla when time allows. Life is wonderful in the desert!
