Ah, it's good to be back

We made it back to Tahoe on Monday morning and wasted no time getting out and enjoying the weather. We went to the beach in the afternoon.

Isn't this the cutest umbrella?! I see one in my future :)

And then for dinner we tried a new place called Freshies. We have heard good things about it, but it was the roof-top seating that drew us in. I was tickled to find this little guy as we waited to be seated.

There was a beautiful view of the lake from our table.

Tuesday night we jumped on our bikes and rode to the outdoor amphitheater where Phish was performing. We weren't able to get tickets, but ended up not needing them. We went exploring, checking out the sound from all sides, and then parked the bikes beside a wall we climbed up on to enjoy the show.

Yesterday, I worked at the Art Center Gallery and attended our monthly meeting. Every month after the meeting, there is an artist who speaks and often does a demonstration. Last night, Erik Holland demonstrated his painting process while sharing some fun little tidbits. He was 30 years old painting on the sidewalks of San Francisco when he sold his first painting to a passerby...who just so happened to be Rosemary Clooney. Ok, so I didn't know who she was either so I looked her up. enjoy :)

  1. Some of us know Rosemary Clooney! I watched her a lot growing up. She was in lots of movies with Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. You probably have seen her in the movies "White Christmas" which plays every year on TV during the holidays. She is also George Clooney's aunt.
