Mr. B, Mika and myself returned from the mountains on Friday evening.

It felt like we were leaving too soon.

After all, not everything on our list of activities had been done.
I mean we didn't even hike to Lemonade Lake or play Putt-Putt golf yet!!!!
"Mr. B can't we stay at least two more weeks?"
But I knew we had to leave, mostly because of several art commitments that I had in the Bay Area.
I cried a little.

Mr. B bought me a cruiser bike for my birthday and I had fun driving around the cabin. At least until I had to go uphill.....without any gears.....so I ended up pushing Mika and my bike up the hills. Andy and Mika took a spin over the weekend.
She looks like she is his co-pilot and on watch for bumps in the road!
|Ashley chose to ride solo - It kinda makes you feel like a little kid again! Can't you just see it in her smile?|
|Butterflies were in abundance this year!|
Now that I have settled in it is nice to be home and return to my own bed, my garden, friends and family but it's also quite a shock!

Now the mountains at home are the mountains of laundry, dishes and "to do" lists!
|Sunset from Sunnyside|
As always, great memories of Tahoe!
I want to thank my parents and grandparents for having the foresight of treasuring this beautiful lake and spectacular wilderness!
"How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains!"
PS - Mama Robin had 4 babies while we were there. She was a busy lady feeding her little ones!
