If it's July, we must be back in Tahoe!* This year, the whole clan has rented three cabins on the west (California) side of the lake, so we will meet up here and there throughout the week.
My daughter drove me here, leaving Groom to his own devices in the second car. I wanted to make sure the kid could make it all the way there. She has class on Wednesday and will need to drive home in one of our cars, so I wanted to make sure she was competent to make the long trip. She is.
The first day here, I usually just sleep. In fact, a lot of us are like that--we build the "coma day" into our collective expectations for a vacation week. Now we are in fine form and potentially ready to journey down to the lake this morning.
Reading Mark Twain's "The Innocents Abroad," which is a travelogue he wrote about his trip to Europe, back in the day. I'm kind of working up a review for Goodreads. Though it's a funny and insightful book, and I'm enjoying it, I don't know how to approach recommending it yet.
* This particular picture is of Donner Lake, which we gazed upon at a rest stop along the way.
