California Coachella Travels

Readers and friends! You may have noticed that I've been absent for a short while on Cottage and Broome, but it's not because I don't love you, I was just on vacation! I took a brief jaunt to California - Los Angeles, Palm Desert and Indio specifically, for the three-day music festival in the desert, Coachella! It was the most fun I've had in a very long time. Since I was absent from you all for so long, I figured the least I could do was share some photos from my travels. Enjoy a taste of Cali below!

The desert windmills. 

Sunny skies at the festival site.

Festival - goers making their way to main stage.

The main stage - the biggest out of five. The Black Keys, Radiohead, Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg, Santigold, The Arctic Monkeys and about two dozen other bands played it over the course of the weekend. 

Coachella after dark. 

Technicolor palm trees.

House music/DJ troupe Swedish House Mafia closed out the first night with fireworks and pyrotechnics.

The festival's iconic ferris wheel aglow - it was a sad sight to leave. Now that I'm back in New York after a trip to the desert and brief stint in Detroit, I'll be posting again - can't wait to show everyone New York in the summertime!

Linking to this week:

You were in our neck of the woods. The girls are not far from here. Your pictures were so colorful, with a bright touch added to them. I really enjoyed them. It sounds like you had a fun time.

Hi Andrea!

I live there! I am what is known as a "Desert Rat" as I live there all year as opposed to the "Sun Birds" who just come for the Winter.

The festival had a mix of weather this year...the first weekend was cold and sprinkled a little, and the second weekend was really hot. Sounds like you had a lot of fun.
