1st Day in Tahoe

So when you go on vacation and want to sleep in, a word to the wise, don't go somewhere that is in a time zone 2 hours behind your normal zone. When your internal clock says 7 and your alarm clock says 5...not truly sleeping in. Anyways, once I forced myself to go back to sleep, we woke up an hour or two later. We then went and indulged ourselves at Heidi's with some apple covered waffles and strawberry covered french toast. Very good. Once that was done I got the bright idea to take a drive AROUND Lake Tahoe, it was only 6" on the map. Once an hour had passed and it looked like we were only a short distance around we almost second guessed our decision. But hey, we are on vacation. So we kept on, and good thing we did...it was amazing. We came upon a castle that we wanted to check out, but will have to do that tomorrow because we want to have our "real" camera with us. However, we saw some great scenery otherwise. I have attached some photos we did take of our sight seeing. We got back to Stateline, the town we are staying in, around 11:30. You know what that means... LUNCH. After lunch we walked around a bit until it was time for a nap. Well nap time has lasted about 4 hours now and I think it is getting close to dinner time. Not sure what we are eating, but I'm sure it will be good. So if you know me, I'm not letting you down. We are on vacation and we are eating and resting a lot! Would you expect any less from a Burgess vacation? I hope not. Ok, off to go wake Lisa up, more to come tomorrow...
