I think we can say that the summer is officially over. We have just returned home from a long weekend at Lake Shasta. It was a great time, and we saw family who we had not seen in a while. It is always great to see everyone, spend some time catching up and sharing a lot of laughs. We even drove a little ways up the highway to see Mt. Shasta, but the pictures my hubby took were a little hazy. Visibility is bad as there is smoke in the air all up and down California due to various fires. Since I hate the highways and my husband cannot go in a straight line, we took many backroads and explored a little. It took us longer, but the lack of traffic made it a much more enjoyable trip.
We visited the now defunct Rancho Seco Nuclear power plant outside of Sacramento. I love that it is now surrounded by solar panels.
We then split up in Sacramento and hit two museums at a time. My husband went to the California State Railroad museum, and my son and I went to the California Automobile Museum. Geno was in seventh heaven!
We stayed at a wonderful little place called Salt Creek Resort. It was small, but it was a great place.The cabins had everything we needed, all we had to do was bring some bedding and food. The whole place was taken up by family, so it was a fantastic weekend full of food, wine and laughter. And our view of the trestle crossing the lake, was the best spot to sit in the morning. Summer is officially over, and I can’t think of a more perfect way to end it!!
