I made it to Lake tahoe and will check into the hotel tomorow for my AQT workshop. In the meantime, my mom and I stopped by to check out the work from the first session, and to take blogger Gerrie out to dinner. I’m excited now to start the workshop after seeing what everyone has been doing, and saying hi to friends from last year. I hope I can sleep tonight ;-). Dinner was wonderful! We went to the River ranch Lodge on the Truckee river, which I know from my childhood as the place where you have to get out of the river and return your rafts and canoes. I’d never been inside though. It was a lovely old place with a typical lodgey feel and we enjoyed drinks by the big fireplace before dinner. Our table was right by a window overlooking the river rapids. By the way, dinner and dessert were delicious, but I didn’t bring the camera cable (thinking my very electronically up-to-date mother would have one) so desert du jour pictures will have to wait until I can poach equipment from Gerrie, or get home. Close your eyes and imagine a wonderfully chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream and fresh berries…….
