Vibrant Blue Skies
And suddenly it seems the skies are that velvety blue that you never knew were possible, it was just a few days ago that the smoke from neighboring county fires was making us think we were about to be evacuated, the falling ash and scent of burning forests filled our sleep with nightmares.....and memories of the angora fire....... So we went to the library to pick up a book I requested from Placerville and it was just serene, the view from the grassy walkway to the library, overlooking the lake and there was a parasailer up with a rainbow chute in that glowing azure background of sky......the trees leave so much cooling shade around the library and there are dew covered flowers closeup with the far off vistas of the Sierra Nevada range nestled against that lake, that blue calm friday morning lake of Lake Tahoe.......pictures cannot do it justice....just seeing lake tahoe while driving makes you cool off from the sheer icy blueness of its vast volume of water. So massive in size I am always surprised when we go to north shore and cannot see our south shore from there!
