|The Lake- approximately 3 blocks from our cabin.|
The cabin was in Carnelian Bay, North Lake Tahoe. It was a residential neighborhood but there was a lot of space between cabins and the trees made it feel more secluded. Inside the house, it was super cozy and cute. I told SMS, "I want to buy a cabin in the woods!" He pointed out we could just keep booking AirBnBs. Touché.
|Thanksgiving Feast, semi-home cooked style- roasted turkey breast, box stuffing, rolls|
from a can, cranberry sauce from a can, roasted brussel sprouts and sweet potato
casserole. The heavenly light seems to be favoring the rolls.
Thanksgiving was pretty mellow. We relaxed after our drive and started cooking. We had a delicious feast with a ton of leftovers so it was definitely a successful Thanksgiving!

We hiked down a gravel road to Vikingsholm, a former Summer residence of several rich Californians as it changed hands over the years. Now it's owned by the State and open for tours in the Summer. Ever since visiting Denmark twice, I've enjoy checking out Scandinavian design so it was cool to see here in Tahoe. I recommend checking it out!

Then we drove home and traded cars with our friend. We had borrowed his front-wheel car with chains since snow was (remotely) in the forecast. Better safe than sorry! We actually just missed the snow- there was snow on the ground while we were there and on Saturday overnight, 8 inches fell!
