Yet another hangover but at least our bathroom has a steam room component and there's nothing like steam to wash away the tannins of Californian vino. We order a healthy breakfast in bed cos we're not in a hurry to do much - well when I say healthy I mean it included a veggie juice for Sarah. My 2 eggs, ham, hash browns, sausage and sour dough toast were all freshly picked from the hotel's organic garden, or that's what I thought they said.
Breakfast over and we head off to the remarkable beauty of Emerald Bay and more scary mountain roads. Back then to the village of Heavenly and an unscheduled stop at a Thai massage day spa. Rub down over and back to the hotel for a spot of lunch. It's the day before Independence Day so everyone is in a heightened sense of something and Reception has just delivered our tickets to tomorrow's grand party to include spit roasted hog, unlimited drinks and the world famous firework display over Lake Tahoe. I note that it all kicks off at 3.30pm with the firework display at 9pm. Now in my book I think the Americans do this sort of thing so very well but 9 minus 3.5 = 5.5 tells me there's been some sort of error somewhere (five and a half hours of boozing and hoping to stay compos mentis for the fireworks is a big ask in my book) Still undaunted by this and the inability to do anything about it and we don't have to worry until tomorrow we go headlong into toxic exercise training and order a jalapeņo Margarita and a Greek Mohito followed by more of the same followed by more of the same followed by.......well anyway you get the gist. It's now 1938 (time, not year) and we've just woken up - got to be at Evans American Gourmet Cafe by 8.30! We just about make it and have a good, if not great meal served by very friendly staff. In fact the staff everywhere from restaurants to hotels to shops have been so nice and friendly without exception.
