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.

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, CALIF. — Watching delicate snowflakes fall outside our motel room. It’s beautiful by the lake and kinda empty. Apparently, we arrived a week before the start of the big ski/snowboard season.

I’ll have to help my hubby clear off the all this white stuff from his car. Soon.

It seemed like a good time to do a weekend trip to the Sierra. I was inspired by a fellow journalist taking off for Guatemala after she finished up her contract.

My plan for this vacation: catch-up on sleep, eat, drink and enjoy the snow. Sounds like we’re getting another big dumping of snow later today. We may get snowed in. I think that sounds romantic for now. I suppose my hubby can telecommute from our motel room.

Anything is possible.

More Playing Around

I’ve read about the snow on the Grapevine. On our LA road trip in February, it was the first time I saw snow on this stretch of I-5. Crazy.
So Cal has seasons.

Another crazy thing – watching family play Nintendo Wii. On this visit – my hubby and cousin faced off on crazy racing contests for “Rayman Raving Rabbids: TV Party.”
