The past week was a pretty hectic week, mostly for me since I struggle with wardrobe problems and trying to plan lol, and at the same time it was an exciting adrenaline! My husband and I had been wanting to go somewhere not too far out from California to end the summer, and the first thing on our minds was Lake Tahoe.
Both my husband and I have never been to Lake Tahoe and we found it really fascinating (those instagram pictures really sold us!) how beautiful and serene it looks up there.
The road trip was definitely a long one ( 9 hours 😀 ) but since we had great company with us, we were not bored one single minute 🙂
As soon as we touched down, we decided to go to our hotel and take a much needed nap. After wards we decided to just spend the rest of the evening walking around town and look for some nice souvenirs. Everything was going very well…as far as we saw.
The next day we got up bright and early to go on our way towards Incline Village to see the famous Sand Harbor beach. Im telling you those pictures on Instagram really look dreamy …(sigh).
When we arrived we noticed the beach was closed due to a high amount of people wanting to get in. So we waited until it reopened. While we waited we decided to go for some snacks. Let me tell you that there is no customer service at all! The people over there talk to one as they please, and the are definitely not polite. Once the park reopened, we decided to head on back. Along the way we thought we had seen the entrance, and we went in. To our surprise, when we pulled over we were not greeted well by a lady who happened to work there. It took us by surprise the way she was speaking (which was in a very rude way!) that we felt very unwelcome and unwanted.
We decided to let it go and just enjoy our time at the beach.Let me just say that the water is so amazing and beautiful! I loved the way it changes colors from light to light aqua blue. Its definitely worth visiting. While on the beach, we noticed plenty of people starring at us. It was a very strange feeling, but again we payed no attention to it. Then when we least expected it, a thunderstorm came along. We were forced to exit. The sad part is that I was only able to capture a few images of the beauty of Sand Harbor.
When returning to our hotel, we saw a nice Thai restaurant and of course we decided to pull over. We made our way in and were greeted in a welcoming way. The only issue was that once we were seated, the people next to us decided that they did not want to be near us. And the ones surrounding us just starred. It was a very uncomfortable situation that we experienced but we were so glad to finally be heading home the next day.
Don’t get me wrong, Lake Tahoe is extremely beautiful. The nature is so welcoming and the weather as well, but the people are not so much.
It was indeed a very great experience for all of us, and with this we learned that we are not going back any time soon and that “home sweet home” will forever be our Long Beach, California.
I still don’t understand why we can’t all treat each other with respect?
Have you ever been to South Lake Tahoe? If so, was your experience the same? I would love to know 🙂
