California Trip

Here are some pictures from our recent trip to Sacramento for the NCAA Track & Field Championships. We were able to do some sightseeing while we were there.
This is Old Sacramento. We bought some taffy from a store that had barrels and barrels of it in lots of different flavors. Licorice was one of my favorites.

There was an outdoor market at the entrance to the mall and near Old Sacramento that had some beautiful cherries, blackberries, peaches, strawberries, vegetables and bouquets of fresh flowers for sale. There was also pistachios with different flavored seasonings. We liked the garlic/onion and ranch.

This cherry tree with big ripe cherries on it was growing in the landscaping between the shopping center and hotel.

We took a drive to South Lake Tahoe for a few hours. We all loved it. The lake was clear and the scenery beautiful. We sat by the lake and relaxed under a thatched tent sipping drinks. The breeze off the water was very cool and comfortable. The water was very cold. I think I would enjoy a vacation there.
