Having helped my son move into his freshman dorm in NY, having enjoyed lots of farewell get-togethers with friends, and having Steven’s wisdom teeth pulled at the last minute, all we wanted to do was drive to a nice, close water hazard, I mean water feature, and sit still for a bit. Breathe. Rest. Read. Do Nuttin, Honey! We have decided to start the journey at Lakes Basin. 60 miles north of Lake Tahoe. Tom Stienstra, travel writer for sfgate.com just wrote about the area 2 weeks ago. Lots of lakes close together under the towering Buttes. Great kayaking, hiking to peaks, and trout fishing was the appeal. However, all that movement now sounds awfully ambitious. I guess that means that we will eventually get out of these lounge chairs and move our bodies a bit, but perhaps not today, not far. We are off like a prom dress!
