The water is as blue as the sky. And crystal clear. We take a seat on the outdoor patio - with tableside heaters for comfort - and take in the view. Wow. We order and I enjoy the Buffalo Chicken Soup in a bread bowl - it's easily some of the tastiest soup I've ever had. But doesn't food always taste better outside with a view? After lunch we walk out to the end of the very long dock. You can see the Tahoe Queen paddlewheeler out in the distance. It's very peaceful - and a tad bit chilly. It's my first visit to Lake Tahoe and it certainly doesn't disappoint.
We drive up to Emerald Point and find a place to park to see the view. Incredible. Then we stop at another point. Another incredible view. There is road construction so our pace is slow. We decide to stop for a drink because if food tastes better outside then a drink by the water is also wonderful. We stop at Jake's on the Lake. A water view and Cleveland Indians baseball. A perfect afternoon.
I've wanted to see Lake Tahoe for some time now. I've looked into week long cabin rentals and boat rentals. But this visit will be short - only a day - and I will take the mantra I always do - I'll enjoy what I can for as long as I can. And I'll be back.
Is Lake Tahoe one of your "happy places"? Have you been in the fall?
Once again, the US is faced with another potentially catastrophic hurricane. Irma is tracking as a Category 5 and poised to hit Florida after devastating some of the Caribbean. Please keep those in Irma's path in your prayers. If you have not donated to help those hit by Harvey, you can find ways to do so here.
