Yesterday we put Quilt Sue in the front passenger seat, put her seat belt on, and drove over the Sierras into Nevada. She kept a stiff upper lip and looked away from some of the shear cliffs which were on her side of the car. The vistas were beautiful.
The Quaking Aspens were gorgeous along the way.
Our first stop was The Quilt House in Gardnerville, NV. Janet, the owner welcomed us and then we began to shop.
I visited with my Country Charmer quilt which is nicely displayed for Christmas.
The shop is large, well lit, and all of the quilts on display looked so pretty.
I love this old hay sled in the center of the shop. It's great for bolts of fabric.
We headed over to Minden, NV and had a picnic lunch in a park. We were close to the American flag to remind Sue where she was.
Our destination was Lake Tahoe.
The water was incredibly blue.
It was a brisk, windy day and the lake was covered with white caps. If you didn't know it was a lake, one would have thought it was an ocean with waves breaking on the shore.
If you look closely, you can see that we donned our crowns that Nancy from Nancie Anne Quilts brought with her. Unfortunately, we had to say our goodbyes to Wayne and Nancy. They headed on to Sacramento to spend some time with their daughter.
We headed back over the sometimes nail biting Ebbetts Pass and arrived at Lake Alpine Lodge just before dark and had dinner in front of the fireplace. Life is good.
