Summer Trip to Tahoe

Summer Trip to Tahoe
Tori and I are back from our Tahoe trip and getting settled back into home life. It’s funny how a trip can so quickly seem like a distant memory.  Do you experience that feeling when you return home from vacation?
Here are my favorite photos from our girls’ trip.
This first photo is from our beach spot at Sand Harbor on the Nevada side. We met a very friendly and gracious family from Sacramento who let us share their section of the beach and even let us use their umbrella for shade.
I so enjoyed meeting them and hope they take me up on our offer to show them around Kenwood and wine taste sometime soon.

Watching the sunset from our table at Bistro on the Pier in South Lake Tahoe – a great restaurant connected to our hotel with fantastic service, fresh food and million dollar views.

My turn to ponder. Probably thinking about my next blog post.

A brilliant sunset in South Lake Tahoe…really spectacular. I did not enhance or doctor this photo at all.

I hope you enjoy our travel photos. I still have so many to share with you from Italy, Switzerland and San Francisco. Each weekend, I am planning on writing a travel post….beginning today!

Have a lovely weekend, friends!

    Your photos are making me *seriously* want to visit Lake Tahoe again. It’s been decades since I’ve been there. How nice that you and Tori could have this getaway together!

    What great photos! I especially love the one of you and Tori at Emerald Bay. Looks like you had a great time, including Coco and Daisy!

    Yes, how quickly those vacation memories fade. I have a photo gallery in my hallway that includes various vacation photos. It’s one way I can reminisce! 🙂

    I was in Tahoe over 30 years ago after graduation with some college girlfriends. We stayed at a condo that belonged to one of the parents. One day we came home after shopping to find the condo full of rocks and broken glass. Some construction was going on across the road in the process of excavating, they did not bury their dynamite deep enough. My poor friend had to make all the arrangements to have everything fixed.

    Your photos are beautiful! It looks like you both had a great time. My hubby and I have been to Tahoe, but would like to go again. Maybe we can check out the place you stayed at. I always get that same feeling when we come back from a vacation. It takes forever to get here and then goes by so fast!

    Lovely photos, Adrienne. Lake Tahoe looks gorgeous, and it sounds like you had a fabulous time there. My kind of place. Coco and Daisy look happy to be there as well.

    It’s so nice to see that you and Tori had a great time, but even better to know that you have the kind of relationship where you can enjoy each other on a friend level and a parent-child level, too. She will look back on these years with much fondness!
