I woke up on Sunday to the smells of coffee and bacon. Jay and Val were already up and had gotten Mom up, too. I joined her at the kitchen table for French toast, maple syrup, and turkey bacon. Then Jay built a fire in the woodstove, and we sat in the sun room awhile. In this photo, Val, Mom, and I are toasting ourselves with mimosas.
Jay and Val had planned to take us to Lake Tahoe for a tour of the lake on the MS Dixie , a large paddleboat, later for a Mother’s Day outing, but by noon the wind was strong, and they decided it wasn’t a good day for going on the water.
State Line Brewery & Restaurant. We stopped at this fountain, and Jason gave us pennies so that we could make a wish. [If we have an easy, uneventful flight home today, Monday, I will have gotten mine.]
Sakhalin to wish Mom a Happy Mother’s Day. We probably talked for 45 minutes of more. The video picture was excellent, as you can see from this picture. Mom also got calls from Katie and Guy in the evening.
