A beach is a beach
I woke up early this morning to fill out postcards on Nevada Beach. It was freezing cold, but so worth it. A beach is a beach. I don’t care how many cool things I’ve seen, nothing will ever be as therapeutic as a beach.
A hike in the mountains
I wanted to hike some well known trails by myself…you know to have time to think and meditate and reflect since this is my eat pray love tour.
I couldn’t figure out where I was supposed to go.
So I called up Jeff and he took his dog, Zephyr and we went hiking up what I like to call, “Granite Mountain.” That’s not really what it’s called but that’s what it looked like. It was a beautiful view of Lake Tahoe. At the top we drank a couple beers before heading down. Perfect. Just perfect.
A run on the beach ❤
I decided to go for a run on the beach once I got home. It was about 3 miles to get to the pier. Then I walked about another mile and sat on the beach and just smiled. It really is too bad that Lake Tahoe isn’t warm more months out of the year.
I ran most of the way back…not a runner.
A Diet Coke at the bar
Yes, I did order a Diet Coke at the casino. I just wanted to get dressed up and go out. And I figured I wouldn’t really have seen all of Nevada until I went in at least one casino. #Fail. At least I tried.
What I learned in Stateline, Nevada
1.) Medical Marijuana cards are not hard to get
2.) I need to learn winter sports so I can enjoy Lake Tahoe area year round.
3.) Lake Tahoe, contrary to what I thought, is NOT warm in May. And I brought swimsuits instead of sweatshirts. How embarrassing.
4.) Hiking is beautiful there, too.
5.) Tahoe area is probably the only great part of Nevada.
6.) There are a lot of great places to meet people…the casino is not one.
7.) Don’t buy soda at a casino bar. It costs more than the liquor.
8.) Boutiques in tourist towns have awesome clothing…that’s unaffordable.
9.) TripAdvisor is a Godsend. It helped me find the most amazing cabins in the whole town.
10.) I love Tahoe and I will move to Carson City so I am close to my job in Reno and the beach at Lake Tahoe. You betcha.
