Laundry day is here, so an early morning trip (7am) to Mr Suds, the laundry in South Lake Tahoe.
Even though we are only traveling for three weeks, it is still best to travel lightly.
Back at the hotel I said to Sangeet we need to figure out where to eat. Sangeet suggested checking happy cow for vegan restaurants, I was surprised to find one:
Simple Bliss Vegan Cafe
2540 Lake Tahoe Blvd. #7
Located in the Swiss Chalet Village
South Lake Tahoe
t: +1 530 542 1474
Pictures of the restaurant
Dare you try the chilli sauce?!
Vegan and gluten free French toast
Negotiating the burger!
The meals were fantastic. Simple Bliss Cafe is a great vegan restaurant. All the dishes can also be made gluten free.
We will be back to Simple Bliss Cafe….
Afterwards we drove through downtown and stopped at the beach. It was a few minutes walk from the busy end of the beach, here we took some yoga pictures for class posters etc.
The quiet side of the beach
Kundalini yoga pose
The busier side of the beach
Beautiful clear water
Walkway next to the beach, here you have access to seating and barbecues
We then drove to the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe, stopping off at various vista points
Logan Shoals Vista a fantastic vista point to take photographs. There is parking available and a short walk to the vista point.
Our roadside snack
The views of Lake Tahoe seems to be better from the Nevada side, maybe it seems that way as it is very sunny today.
Driving along with marvellous views of the lake. We also stopped at Memorial Point and took a short walk along the lakeshore.
Sangeet made her way to the top of this waterfall, by hanging onto trees!!
We drove full circle around Lake Tahoe today.
For dinner, back to Bliss Cafe
The drinks are amazing and worth trying
On the menu there is more then just the burger, honest!
Cheesecake, made out of cashew, it was so yummy!!
Back at the hotel we relaxed in the common area
We watched ‘The Blind Side’. The Blind Side is a 2009 American semi-biographical sports drama film. It is written and directed by John Lee Hancock, and based on the 2006 book The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game by Michael Lewis. The storyline features Michael Oher, an offensive lineman who plays for the Baltimore Ravens of the NFL. The film follows Oher from his impoverished upbringing, through his years at Wingate Christian School (a fictional representation of Briarcrest Christian School in Memphis, Tennessee), his adoption by Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy, to his position as one of the most highly coveted prospects in college football, then finally becoming a first round pick in the NFL by the Baltimore Ravens .
So wrapped up with technology, at one point I was using the laptop, iPad and iPhone whilst watching the movie!
I truly recommend watching this movie, a fantastic and heart warming story!
