Reservoir

Reservoir

Here are some more photos from my visit home. This reservoir has a trail leading to it from right behind my house so I've spent lots of time wandering the paths up there. It's my favorite thing about my hometown, and every time I visit my parents I make sure to spend an hour or two every day going for walks and looking at the view. The reservoir is dotted with paddleboats in good weather, people fish off the docks surrounding the water, and on weekends the grass is teeming with picnic-ers. The reservoir is not something you expect to find in suburbia and I think that's why I love it so much. It is especially beautiful at sunset, and there is an amazing view of Mt. Diablo from the rim trails around the top.

I loved being home and seeing my family and girl friends in San Francisco, but I gotta say, Tahoe is hard to beat! I've been getting a little spring skiing and snowboarding in, working hard, and spending time with friends. One of my friends has a five year old son and I love hanging out with him; we play sword fights, hockey, and all sorts of other silly but exciting things. It's nice to be totally wacky with him, especially since I'm no longer teaching so I don't have any kids to play ridiculous games and ski with.

I'm so excited to wear this dress when spring rolls around. It's from UO, and I love the little ruffles around the neck. The shoes and belt are thrifted of course! We've been having some glimpses of sunshine here and there and they just cleared the bike path. I cannot wait to start riding around in my sundress!

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. Did you do anything exciting to celebrate?

Such a pretty dress and what a beautiful place too! I haven't been back where I grew up in the summer for what feels like ages (well, it has been years). You make me want to go exploring my childhood haunts in the sunshine :)

Gorgeous dress & location. It looks like the perfect weather. I'm jealous of your Spring skiing.. I only got out once this year. Skiing is just so ridiculously expensive. I love playing with little kids.. especially boys because they always wanna have swords fights & stuff. hehe
