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...

How nice to play tourist once in a while. It looks like a cozy resort for roaming around in.ReplyDelete
I went to Lake Tahoe when my youngest daughter was only 3. She is now 24. But I am hoping that one day my husband and I make the trip to see it. It is a beautiful place to visit.ReplyDelete
Crafty hugs, Ana
So nice you got 'away'!!! Sounds like you had a great time!!ReplyDelete
There was a time when skiing was a dream, but I agree that all of that gear nowadays seems more problematic than enjoyable. It sounds like a fun getaway for both of you.ReplyDelete
Must have been a special adventure seeing this beautiful place, up in the hills, Sherry. You look so beautiful, with your long hair, I wish I had more hair, but not so for me,lol. A lovely day, and a safe homecoming , what more can one ask for !!ReplyDelete
I have fond memories of visiting Lake Tahoe and going to the casino to see a couple of shows. We stumbled into a small venue there that only cost us a purchase of a drink and we saw BB King perform! That was one of the best shows and hardly cost anything. BB sure could play Lucille! You and Mr.C. look like you enjoyed yourselves.ReplyDelete
Looks like a fun day. we had a safari client from the Lake Tahoe area, many years ago, so I always notice the name.ReplyDelete
My idea of a ski trip is pretty much what you did. I would love to visit and sit in the chalet, in front of a roaring fire, with coffee and either a good book or my stitching in hand. Ah....bliss!ReplyDelete
Looks like you had a lovely adventure! So nice that you could get away for a bit.ReplyDelete
Oh, my, you've reminded me that I need to get my income tax done! Better get started! xoxo Jane
What an amazing place to go and such a lovely trip! thanks for sharing it with us!ReplyDelete
How nice to get out for a day trip to such a lovely place! So glad I popped in to see what you are up to. XOReplyDelete
Yes, I understand very well what you mean about your jobette cutting into your creative time - I have the same issue. Between work and company in Marc I had so little time to make anything but have been able to work on a few things this past week - it has been a real joy!ReplyDelete
Good for you for taking some time to go out with Mr. C and enjoy some of that amazing scenery - it looks like you had a wonderful day.
I am so glad that lady offered to take such a great shot of you two! I haven't been to Tahoe in years...a trip might just be in order. XOXOReplyDelete
