The race weekend in Livermore, CA was all the wedding anniversary celebration I needed. Seeing John place 2nd in the road race; earning enough points to upgrade to the next category and spending time with a sister I have not seen in years were gifts I couldn't place a price tag on. Still, John and I had another non-work day to share together and so soon after we returned home from our trip, we were back on the road. This time a much shorter distance's drive, across the California/Nevada border to Truckee, CA.
We liked Truckee. Not only does the Truckee Meadows River flow through the small town but all of the shops and restaurants in the historic district were really neat. We'd like to return to Truckee soon to spend more time exploring each one. Perhaps for the next visit, we'll take a mellow ride on the train for lunch or dinner.
The weather was cool but it was still a pretty day and as much as we'd love to break out a laptop and lounge on the seats of the coffee shop to fit in with everyone, we were more excited about exploring the Boca and Stampede Reservoirs nearby. For more information, check out the "Truckee River Flows & Storage" link on the Truckee Meadows Water Authority's website.
marmots were calling to each other on the rocks and as they ate grass, ducks quacking in the ponds, and after the sun sets the frogs start chirping.
What a wonderful anniversary weekend it was!
