Visiting Northstar Tahoe...
Living here we have access to wonderful Lake Tahoe most any time of the year. Since I am not a fan of cold weather or snow or ice, Mr. C and I decided to take a drive on a lovely Sunny day between storms a couple of weeks ago. We drove to Northstar, Tahoe which is an amazing ski resort. I have linked it for you if you want more information. The parking lots were full and we thought of leaving...just then a nice young man directed us to a perfect parking spot. Another nice young man told us to walk a few feet and get on the shuttle bus that would take us up the hill to the "village". There was no snow on the roads which made for an easy drive. The ski slopes were full of fresh powder and skiers and boarders of all shapes, sizes and ages.
As Mr. C and I were gazing all about in wonder a nice lady offered to take our photo. We are standing in front of a fun toy and game store. You can see they have checkers outside for anyone to play.
Here I am standing near the Ice Rink which was closed until later in the day. At one end there was a band setting up at an outdoor stage. We sat in very comfortable outdoor covered and heated seating area and watched the many people coming and going. Watching the skiers walk in those stiff boots looked challenging and definitely not for me.
After a while we walked some more and then had lunch in one of the many restaurants. It was a lovely day and we enjoyed our visit very much. We had a safe drive home over Donner Pass.
March is quickly coming to an end and I am wondering where my days have gone. Yes, I am still doing my "jobette" at the Chamber. It leaves me no time for creative vices. My studio and sewing room are begging for my attendance and activities. Soon...I promise!
I can hear an awful lot of very big sighes of relief from friends and family as they complete their Income Tax appointments. Mr. C and I are always early to complete this task. It gets a lot easier when you have no income as retired seniors on a fixed budget.
What is keeping you busy as we head into April? I am enjoying reading your blogs when I wind down from my busy day of "working". I continue to Embrace each and every day with wonder. There is always something new to learn, or try, or experience. I enjoy that and never get bored. May you have wonderful days of Happiness and JOY...
