Lake Ta-Ho...So Nice

It's almost a full week since we got back from our wonderful trip to Lake Tahoe with great friends, Rob and Sandi.
Sam and I rode the motorcycle and they were nice enough to follow behind us.  We started out on a raining Thursday morning, but arrived to beautiful NV/CA weather.

We brought our street bikes and rode a few days around campgrounds and along a lake trail.  Gorgeous.

Rob and Sam.

Sam spied me.

We even found where Jack lives.

 I love hollyhocks. and had to stop to take these photos.  This gardner definitely has a green thumb!

We played cards on a breezy afternoon at the lake.

Sam and I.

Breakfast at the Bear Beach Cafe where most bears are welcome...even stuffed ones.

Sandi checking out the tram up the mountain.

Are you sure Happy Hour doesn't start at 11 am?

Classic car show in the open mall.
Great time, great weather, great food and great, great friends.
This was my first visit to Lake Tahoe.  I grew up in So. Cal. but we never traveled there.  How I wish we had visited 30 years ago and bought property!

Mae Ya Waterfall, Thailand

August 6...The kids are doing well in Chaing Mai.  A lot going on for Christine with the beginning of school.
They try to venture out when ever they can.   Especially when the skies are clear.

Today their family took a little hike to the Mae Ya waterfall.

Our two sillies being silly.

Mommy said this child needs special attention...I can't wait to visit for that is just what Nee Nee will give her.

Spirit/prayer ribbons around a tree to keep the spirits peaceful. 

Family photos.

Adelina loves her Mommy.

The Mae Ya Waterfall.

Peace, Christine...peace.  

Such a wonderful adventure.  You and Alec are our brave children.
Living your life outside the box.  
I am as proud of you as much as I miss you (which means very, very much).  

We are down to just 4.5 months before Bapo and I will be there to help.
