Lake Tahoe!

Andrew and I spent the first part of our day in Lake Tahoe yesterday. If you’ve never had the chance to go, Tahoe is gorgeous. Lovely. Just plain gorgeous. It’s easily one of my favorite places in the world—a gorgeous green-blue lake, lots of little mom and pop restaurants, big trees, and tons of little shops to piddle around. Andrew and I had never been here together, so it was fun to show him around places I vacationed at as a kid.

We started with breakfast at Heidi’s, a family favorite with delicious food. I had some amazing strawberry crepes—crepes are their speciality—and nibbled at Andrew’s omelet. Oh, and guzzled coffee, obviously.

Then, we wandered down by the lake, and took a lovely walk along the beach. It was gorgeous.

Next, we decided to ride the Heavenly Gondola. It is a gondola that goes all the way up a huge mountain and offers spectacular views of the lake. Here’s some shots of our journey up the mountain:

We had such a nice morning. Now, I’m a poker widow while Andrew plays some tournaments. If you think about it, send some good luck our way—he’s hoping to score a huge win during these tournaments.

  3. Tahoe IS gorgeous…and it’s so close, I don’t know why I don’t go there. In a previous lifetime (during my TV production days), I was there more regularly…we used to cover ski events…at Heavenly. 🙂 Great pics!
