Greetings from the Trees

by on August 23, 2011


I am writing to you today from Lake Tahoe. I am here for our family cousins’ week vacation, with fifteen of my brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, children and hubby. It’s a huge party! From most of the rooms of the rental house, we have a view of the trees, as I do now from the living room.
Trees as far as the eyes can see: the view from the balcony in our Lake Tahoe vacation rental.

In addition to the joys of being in the mountains, I just love being with the family, with our kids that range from five to twenty-three, where at any one time at least thirteen items are lost. At the moment this includes my red hairbrush, a few reusable water bottles, two pairs of sunglasses, a blue bottle of sunscreen, one set of car keys, the coffee beans we bought yesterday, a pair of running shoes, a Samsung phone charger, an unopened package of Zrytec, a still-warm cup of coffee, a sun hat, and a half empty package of chewing gum.

I wish I could visit that place some day, you are kindly invited to visit my country Peru which is an amazing country with great sights and friendly people. Thanks a lot for your news which are useful tips for my work and please keep in touch.

I would love to visit Peru one day. Meanwhile there is a Peruvian restaurant near me ( Qero in Encinitas, CA) that is wonderful!

Barbara, thanks a lot for sharing your travelling experiences. I really enjoyed looking at your photos! Had great fun! Wish I had visited all these places together with you.

You are so blessed to be at Lake Tahoe with your family. I’ve been there three times and thought I was in Paradise. I hope to go there again someday.
thanks for sharing!

This is a nice view and a nice vacation. I think that you have a great time with your cousin in that beautiful view. I hope that I can also visit this place and do the food trip and picnic thing.

Woo hoo! I found the red hair brush, the sunscreen in the blue bottle, and one pair of sandals!
