morning dawned lovely and fine with clear blue skies, something we havent seen for a few days and so we packed up and tried to find our way off the air base first we came across a whole heap of wild turkeys running round the base,  and finally the gps got it right and we were on our way to lake tahoe. it was just two hours drive so we had heaps of time to look at different things on our way and enjoy the scenery as well. our first stop was on one of the rivers and there were heap and heaps of people in rubber rafts rafting down the river, people had their own tubes and rafts, there were rafts you could hire and there was one lady who had a wee dog who had a life jacket on and a handle to pick up the dog, (check out the photo of this) we watched from the bridge and there were people dressing up and others just there to cool off. was an amazing sight to see all rafters. time of move on so off we go again and the whooooa we drove past this most amazing alpaca shop so connie had to turn around and back we went. there were mats cushions clothes, and teddies. all made from alpaca fur, i had to buy a teddy bear he is so cute and soft. off we go again and there were lots of stops along the lake shore to get pics, and the views were amazing for sure.  Lake tahoe is a very beautiful lake.  in the winter time they must get heaps of snow because the road markers were higher than the car that is a lot of snow. i did see a couple of ski fields and lots of signs about snow.  we went down to zephyr cove to book our seats on the dinner cruise on the paddle steamer ms dixie11 Tahoe Queen. then it was back to our hotel to check in have a coffee and then get sorted to go on this cruise. what a room we have, it has a hot tub and believe it or not, it has a telephone in the toilet, i kid you not, see the pic. still havent worked out why but it is there. soon it was time to be back on the road and head down to zephyr cove to get on the paddle boat for our three hour dinner cruise. when we arrived there we purchased our ticket and went to wait in line, and guess what, there was a wedding party waiting to go on the cruise as well, so there were lots for dinner. we eventually got on the boat and we headed off at 6pm and we were all seated to have dinner, shrimp cocktail, garlic bread and salad, steak, mashed spuds, and vegs, and then to top it off a piece of triple chocolate cake (not fair not fair, i couldnt eat it :(  ) a couple of drinks then it was off up to the outside decks to sit and enjoy the view. the cruise was 3 hours and in no time we were back at the wharf and lookin at the pictures which we had taken on our way onto  the boat. then it was back to the hotel to pick up the jewellery brian had purchased before we left and then to our room and into the hot tub (bliss). well tomorro is going to be a long drive back to vegas so toddle pip everyone and we will be back tomorro, enjoy the pics and more signs. lol
