We took a trip up to Tahoe for the long weekend and those $4/gallon gas prices apparently kept everyone at home. Great! No traffic and no hoardes of humanity.
Despite every intention on knitting amongst the pines, none of that happened. Oh well. Since there’s no knitting to amuse you on this knitting blog, I’ll show you the best darn thing I saw while toddling around the lake. (FYI walking with purpose at altitude is a great little endurance builder.)
If you’re unfamiliar with Tahoe property prices (and I’m certainly not-not my reality), family sized holiday homes in this area come in pretty darn close to $1 million for recent construction and lake views. This fine home was brand spanking new and huge. Sure it had custom EVERYTHING, but it also had this bear. It’s carved from a log. A big log. In one piece. Bear is sitting on that custom pillar holding up the custom deck in front of the huge custom windows.
I can only imagine the telephone conversation ordering the bear sculpture contained the words "no, bigger" quite a bit. Anywho, here it is in it’s glory. It’s actually kind of creepy-looking all splayed like that. And as my friend said, money can’t buy taste.
What’s Bear looking at? The lake of course…Happy
