Valentine mini-break

Dan and I took the beagle with us on a mini-break to Lake Tahoe last week.

Even though I was still recovering from a nasty bug, we had a lovely time...especially lucky with the weather...sunny, clear and not-too-cold...snowed a bit our last evening there, and the next morning everything was covered with a light dusting of magical!

We stayed in a dog-friendly cabin on the North Shore, where they had a big library of movies and lots of goodies...chocolate chip cookies, hot chocolate, make-your-own waffles at breakfast...they even lent us snowshoes and big round plastic discs to go sledding! We also went cross-country skiing with the pooch, strolled the shops in historic Truckee, and just relaxed by the fireplace, with s'mores...yum.

oh so much fun! we've been dying to take Bella to Tahoe with us but never seem to find the right cabin to rent that allows dogs and has everything else we want. i'll have to look into this one. . .

What a trooper that Arrow is! Glad you and DD enjoyed your getaway, even if the maple syrup wasn't of, well, our caliber.

i wonder how the bassett would have faired with that much snow!
