One for the Daddies
Good Afternoon Ladies & Gentlemen,
Yesterday was a hella busy day at work...and I didn't feel like blogging when I got home. It happens. You all know the feeling. Well, those of you who blog. It even happens to me. No offense, I just wasn't feeling it...and my phone was going off like it was my birthday anyway. Nothing really happened anyway except... HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to my baby brother Kiel because his crack whore wife signed the divorce papers...and pending a few weeks of bureaucracy and processing, he'll be a bachelor again. He's really happy about it, as you might expect. My dad's a little under the weather today though, so I hope he gets feeling better before tomorrow's big day - Father's Day 2010. You all know how I feel about Father's Day. It's the one day a year where all the good fathers of the world FINALLY get recognized. Be sure that yours knows that you Love them. Or if yours doesn't deserve it, then make sure that those who do deserve it know that it's appreciated.
Today, I decided to finally just go check out Emerald Bay here in the Tahoe area by myself. I planned on going to it with a few friends when they visited...but I got stood up a few times...so f**k 'em, I'll just have to go without 'em. It's a beautiful state park in the southwestern part of Lake Tahoe...and as the pictures will show, it's amazing.
There are signs saying you shouldn't swim out to Fannett Island
Why? Because the water is extremely cold
Have you ever wondered what's in a tree's vagina?
"Oooh, it's all sticky..."
The trail down to the beach is about a mile long...and chuck full of little waterfalls...and then you end up right along beach...and Vikingsholm, which is one of the finest examples of Scandinavian architecture in the United States. It was built in the early 20th century (like 1918 or so) by a wealthy business man & his wife so that they could enjoy this beautiful area during the summer months (like everybody else as it's barely accessible during the winter). Along the trail, I volunteered to take a bunch of pictures for couples & families...which kinda made me miss my family & friends...but hey, a playa plays on. Enough of that, here are the pictures...
I just liked this chair...
Here's one of my new favorite spots, Eagle Falls. It's not my new favorite...mostly because there's too many damn people there on a consistent basis...but it's pretty sweet because it's one of the most gorgeous waterfalls I've ever seen...and you can get close enough to feel the mist off it on a warm summer day. It's only competition thusfar...is Niagara Falls. Go check that out if you get a chance too. Here you go...
Why am I smiling?
Because I'm looking at this from the top of Eagles Falls
After hiking there for a bit, I went to South Lake Tahoe, had some lunch at Murphy's Irish Pub (chicken philly steak & Stella Artois to wash it down), then went to the casinos, a car show and a carnival. Oh yes, I said carnival...
You know I'm going to ride a ferris wheel if I see one...
but allegedly, I was too old (not mature) for this one
Anyway, I hope that you enjoyed my day as much as I did. If you'd ever like to see it first-hand, let me know. We'll hook it up. Speaking of beautiful craziness, this crazy tall sexy white boy from Utah may be going to Burning Man. What's Burning Man? If you don't know, you'd better ask somebody. From what I understand it's a big week-long drug-induced hippie orgy in the desert that happens every year the week before Labor Day & I just found this out... IT HAPPENS JUST A FEW HOURS FROM HERE NORTH OF RENO!!! I think I was meant to attend, at least for a few days. Apparently it's kind of expensive though (as the website suggests). Damn yuppie hippies!!! See, I don't do drugs or anything...but I want to check it out. You know, for observational purposes. I'm a doctor AND a scientist. Have a great weekend everybody!!!
