Before hitting the road for the 2.5 hour drive home to San Diego, we stopped by the amazing Parker Palm Springs (formerly Le Parker Meridien) for brunch at Norma’s. We were seated on their colorful, Jonathan Adler-designed, dog-friendly patio and Hoku was immediately given a cookie and his own bowl of water. Such service! David, the benedict connoisseur, ordered the Eggs Florentine, and I got the Very Berry Brioche French Toast. Both were delicious, decadent and almost too pretty to eat.
After breakfast, we walked around the gorgeous hotel grounds (which felt like a desert oasis) and David made himself comfortable on a hammock while Hoku did doggy yoga. For some reason, Hoku LOVED the Parker’s super lush lawn and kept rubbing his face on it and rolling around in it like it was the best grass in the whole wide world. Maybe they use some sort of bacon-flavored fertilizer? :)
