Yesterday, I went to Lake Tahoe, for the first time. It was a one-day trip that saw me leave Belmont around 7am and return around 10pm. On my way to the Lake, I picked up Felix, a coworker who lives about 3 hours away from me and who drove the rest of the way to the lake. What we did, in essence, was to drive around the lake once, stopping frequently to take pictures, eat, or get a coffee or a hot chocolate. We talked to some people along the way and we had a great time. On the way back, I got to meet some of Felix's friends (very, very nice people indeed), who invited me to bring my family to hunt for gold (yes, real gold).
I loved Felix's house, a large, isolated space that is full of books, overlooks a forest, and has a drawbridge. Yes, you read right: you have to cross a drawbridge to get to the front door. The doorbell is a gong.
Here are some pictures of the trip that I took with my phone:
