On a clear day......

8:21 am - Thursday - It was 36 F degrees earlier this morning!  Taking into consideration that the high Wednesday was 80, that is a 44 degree swing overnight.  For the first time since late June we had both of our built in electric heaters cranking out heat this morning.  The weather continues to be perfect......sun, blue skies and no wind.

Wednesday looked a lot like Tuesday......I worked on a couple of bikes for friends in the morning and in the afternoon we took a ride......a ride over to Lakeview Commons at El Dorado Beach.  It's about 4.5 miles each way, and much of the distance can be ridden on paved bike paths that run almost to Stateline.....

Our two 'dumpster diving' beach chairs

Nothing like a 'pano' for perspective

 Note the color variations in the water as it gets deeper, plus the 'sea' plane, and para sailors, too.

......we arrived at Lakeview Commons about 2:30 and sat relaxing, reading and just plain enjoying the amazing view looking northward.  On a side note, the beach chairs you see in the above pictures were recovered earlier this summer from dumpsters.  They are both, obviously, used, but are in pretty good shape.  They both have shoulder straps on them so they can be easily slung on our backs for walking, or a bike ride.  When it's time to depart TVC we'll store them in one of the maintenance sheds until our return next year.

Of course, being so close to Sidellis Lake Tahoe Brewing, we had to stop by on our way home for a couple of brews and an early dinner before continuing our trek homeward.......

We love this table as we park our bikes on the other side of the lattice fencing seen in the background enabling us to keep an eye on them.

.....we arrived back home just begore 7 pm, and settled into another evening fire.  A few minutes after I lit the fire  we were joined by fellow nomads Brian and Maria (30 somethings) whom we met our first year on the road when we stopped off briefly at Cedar Key, FL........the aforementioned cold chased us indoors by 8:40.  We watched Masterchef, and were in bed by 10:30.

Thanks for stopping by!
