June 20 and 21 Day 12 and 13 Friday and Saturday

We arrived in Sparks, Nevada on Friday about 3pm. The check in line was getting long then but got much longer after we checked in at the Nugget Hotel.
This is the view of the east tower from our room.  We had a handicapped room on the 18th floor that was a corner room. Beautiful view. Huge room!  We had the best dinners at the Steakhouse in the Casino. I had halibut with limoncello sauce (I think that's spelled right!) It was absolutely delicious.

Lon had a prime rib dinner that also was scrumptious!! We were stuffed after we shared a dessert that the waitress talked us into :-)

There was a big rodeo going on in Reno. It had started on Thursday and will run until the 26th I believe. Saw lots of cowboys and cowboy hats!!! Reno always has something going on.
Today we left Reno about 11 am and arrived in Chester about 3pm - just in time to check into our motel - Rose Quartz Best Western. It's beautiful in Chester. The air is so clean and smells so good with the pine trees. The wind in the trees brings back a lot of memories.  We went out to Lake Almanor to my niece's cabin to have dinner with my sister and her daughter and her family. We were pleasantly surprised to have Jackie's son come up from the valley to surprise us. We had Jackie's "famous tacos" and french fries. It was a delicious dinner sitting on her deck looking at the lake and enjoying the company of family.


Me and my sis.  It was getting a little chilly with the wind blowing off the lake. It's 58 degrees now. Time to turn in. Lon has been in bed for a couple of hours!! What a good day this has been. Take care. More later. <3
