Almost Didn't Make It..................

.............to Lake Tahoe............too many beautiful things to see..........these were wild sweetpeas i think........my grandmother used to grow them.....they graced the sides of the road on the way up the mountains.............. We kept finding places to pull over and take pictures and just stand and take it all in.....I could see the cares of the past few months fall away from my husband as he smiled and took pictures and just breathed.............. I could have found a comfy rock and sat for hours dangling my feet in the water........But BUT, we had a destination in mind..........maybe sometimes its important to not have a destination just make the journey count. And honestly that is something hubby and i have learned over the years.....We used to be 'Get from point A to point B as fast as possible' kind of people when we were younger..........mellowing with age is not a bad thing.......Now if there are places we see along the way and want to stop and explore .......we do.......and we get there when we get there..... ...............unless ofcourse you have a deadline.......and we did .......of sorts......all the advice from websites suggested getting to the trail head leading to Emerald Bay early because parking fills up and i have to second that motion........we got there shortly after 9am and by the time we left.....around lunch time it was FULL.........so don't dawdle too long...........What? Your wondering where the blue water is.............soon.....soon....enjoy the journey...........Hugs! deb

Beautiful scenery. I'm so glad you are seeing the wonders of your new side of the country. Wish I was there too!!

Yes, it is true as we grow older we learn to stop and smell the flowers!
