Jello gazing.....

You might recall that our daughter, Meredith, visited here at TVC with her friend Amy a couple of weeks ago.  On their way out of town and back to SoCal they stopped off for breakfast at a place near Stateline called 'A Cup of Cherries' on the spur of the moment.  They raved about their breakfast of Island Pancakes and insisted we must go there for breakfast one time.  Just after I finished dumping the tanks I made a call to Sunset Isle RV Park in Cedar Key, FL to make reservations for 5 weeks beginning in January.  It has been a few years since we were last there and 2017 is the year we will return.

After taking care of a few morning chores (dump the tanks, remove the wood panels covering the solar panels, and clean off the solar panels) we headed out on our Cannondale Tandem for a 16 mile ride which would include a stop at the aforementioned 'A Cup of Cherries' for a latish breakfast.  We left TVC about 10:30 am and arrived at the restaurant by 10:50.......

'Island Pancakes'

.....we found an alfresco table just outside the entrance and quickly snagged it.  Of course I had to order the Island Pancakes which come with perfectly cooked bacon.....as my daughter remarked, "It is magical", and I would agree.  Yelp gives them 4 stars on over 400 reviews.....spot on!

About 11:30 we continued our 16 mile loop by riding further east on US 50 to the intersection of Ski Run Blvd. where we turned south for a few blocks to pick up Pioneer Blvd. where we turned west covering about 7 miles once again connecting with US 50 where we turned east once again to head for the barn.  We were back home by 12:30 sitting in the shade and relaxing.

I spent part of the afternoon talking with our current neighbor, Scott, who is an instructor of Yoga instructors.....he teaches others how to teach Yoga.  In addition he is an acupuncturist, and an herbalist.  He travels around the world teaching yoga, and uses South Lake Tahoe as his base.  He has lived in SLT for over 40 years, and became a full time RV'er about 2 years ago when he decided to simplify his life.....a very familiar story.  

About 5 pm I got out a Cuban cigar that had been given to me by a customer over the 4th of July weekend as a 'Thank You' for help I had given him and his family when they first arrived.....

.....I savored every puff!  At 6 I grilled up some carne asada for street tacos to accompany some Mexican (pinto) beans TLE had been preparing all day.  We sat talking until well after 7 pm before heading inside as the chill of the evening began to descend over TVC once again.

In closing, there are some possible schedule changes coming for us later in the week.  Right now the changes are in the discussion stage with our manager, Robert, but we should know in the next couple of days if they will come to fruition.  The changes will be dramatic for us, but are totally our idea.   Robert seems to be buying into our suggestions, and we are very excited about the new possibilities for us.....stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by!
