Goodbye Summer

Hello friends, lest you think I've vanished off the face of the earth I thought I'd share a couple of pictures from a recent trip hubby and I took. Two weeks ago we drove out to Lake Tahoe for five days; hubby spent most of his childhood summers there and our family always made it a vacation destination. In the past, there has always been a boat concourse and we've enjoyed going to it. Last year it was cancelled due to Covid, but it looked like it would be held this summer. We bought tickets and invited some close friends to join us at Tahoe and go to it. Unfortunately, the boat show was cancelled again. The other couple chose to pass and we decided to drive out anyway. I can tell you the drive was tiring! Along with the long days of driving, throw in the Dixie fire and dangerous air quality. We did get to walk around Hot August Nights car show and then spend three days there. South Shore Tahoe is not what it used to be and we both decided we don't need to go back. While we were there, we couldn't do any hikes we had planned and so drove to Fallen Leaf Lake~another hot spot for hubby's teen years. I couldn't pass up this shirt.

It took us two days to get home, only to find out the air quality was just as bad as there.  We decided to run up to one of our favorite Colorado get aways-Steamboat Springs. The air was clear and it was as delightful as ever to visit.  We only spent two nights there and hiked one morning.  
I sent these pics to my girls and was immediately informed that their dad who was styling a fanny pack for carrying water bottles, is really in style-as these are coming back again.  What???  

 WE had a lovely time and a couple of delicious dinners.  We're home now with our busy schedules keeping us running in different directions.  

I hope you are all well.
