Our past vacations have tended to be a bit over-programmed, so we are working to not have too much scheduled. On Day 2 of our vacation, the only thing we had scheduled was a magic show in the late afternoon.
Roly and I walked to breakfast at IHOP. It was a small walk over there and on the way it started to snow a tiny bit. Roly liked seeing the flakes come down, but nothing was sticking. When we returned, the family got together to head over to the beach (of Lake Tahoe). Toby had the idea that we would take a nice walk around a portion of the shoreline. It turns out, at least in our area, that most of the beach access is restricted private property that we can’t walk on. So we played football a bit and then drove over to explore the shops in Heavenly Village. The Sunday of a 4 day holiday weekend is not the best time to try to find parking here. So we skipped the village and had a pretty good lunch at Red Hut Soda Fountain & Ice Cream Parlor. After some down time, we *walked* back to Heavenly Village to see the magic show. For one of the illusions, Toby volunteered herself and me to be onstage (the call out was for an old married couple). The magician, Titou, put her wedding band into a sealed cup of Cup O’ Noodles that was inside a locked box that I was holding! Crazy. It was an amazing show, and I would pay to see Titou again.
