Hello and welcome to my blog. This is a compilation of travel stories, photos and places that I have visited over the years (although once in a while I will include places that I WANT to visit!). I love to travel and am also a bit of a "foodie" so every now and then I will probably start talking about my favorite restaurants too. Enjoy!

North Shore, Lake Tahoe - July 4th, 2010

Hello again everyone,

It has been way too long since my last post but my day job has been keeping me busy leading up to our new product launch. No excuses though! I was able to sneak away for a long weekend up in Lake Tahoe over the 4th of July weekend and had the most wonderful time staying in the beautiful Incline Village and exploring the North Shore.

We headed up on Thursday afternoon and started the weekend with cocktails and snacks on the deck of Jake's On The Lake overlooking the lake. A couple of fruity cocktails and an Ahi Poke Roll later (which was delicious by the way), I was feeling nice and relaxed and ready to have a fun weekend. We headed to Incline and got ready for a nice dinner at the Lone Eagle Grill right on the lake -- fabulous service and amazing food! Such a treat if you are looking for a nice night on the town.

The weekend continued with lunch at Garwoods in Kings Beach - no, we did not have the Wet Woody's this time because we had a tee time right afterwards... but I will definitely be trying one or two the next time I go! Here are a few pics from the beach outside of Garwoods.

We golfed both the Championship Course and the Mountain Course in Incline Village over the course of the weekend and the courses won both matchups. Don't worry -- I'll be back soon and plan to redeem myself...

And of course, the 4th of July would not be complete without a fireworks display. We attended a party at the Lone Eagle and then watched the fireworks from the dock. What a beautiful night with friends and family. Definitely a weekend to remember -- I just did not want to leave...

Enjoy the fireworks and maybe we'll see you there next year?
