Weekend Escape To Tahoe

Short weekend vacations rock my world.

It’s wonderful to head to the Sierra when we need a change of scenery and break from life in Vacaville and the Bay Area.

I missed watching snowflakes fall and our Tahoe trip gave me plenty of the white stuff. I snapped this picture of the mountain off Ski Run Blvd.

For this trip – it was all about walking in the snow and enjoying warm bars with cozy fireplaces. Some local merchants said it was a bit icy on the mountain for skiers and snowboarders. I was happy to be a simple snow bunny with no work commitments or responsibilities. It was a very relaxing weekend.

Cold weather calls for soup. So, I went with the Seared Ahi Udon at “Off the Hook.” I warmed up nicely after slurping up the thick noodles, shiitake mushrooms and tuna.

The most important thing about our weekend escape: spending time with each other. We spent most of our weekend trip eating good food and sipping warm cocktails or cold beer. We played chess inside a cafe as a winter storm dumped a few more inches on the South Shore.

Good times in Lake Tahoe.
