A Vacation in my Own Back yard – Lake Tahoe, California!
I live in one of the most beautiful locations in the United States – Lake Tahoe, California! I know I’m very fortunate to get to work, play, and live in a place that thousands of people travel to each year for their vacation.
Living in a vacation-resort, second home market, I often work every day, including the weekends when visitors are in the area, and I love it! No regrets on a crazy real estate schedule that comes with last minute changes, but I also look forward to making my time-off count.
In the past, my better half, Craig and I have taken advantage of all of the summer fun that occurs while we’re in our peak tourist season. This year we plan to do the same. As crazy as this may be to many, by attending many of the special events that our area offers each year, it often feels like we are on vacation in our own back yard, without any of the hassle that comes with vacation travel.
This year I have special plans for some time off. My parents are scheduled to visit us in late June. This will be my summer vacation. I can’t wait to see my Dad. He’s in his 80’s and I miss seeing him every day. He’s an amazing man, and I’m counting the days until I see him again, only 29 days to go!
Their visit will be a short one, only 5 days, so I plan to make the most of our time together. What will we do while my folks are here? We’ll go to the beach. Take the sunset ride on the Tahoe Gal. Dine out at one of the local lakefront restaurants. If time permits we’ll do the Tahoe City Wine Walk. Maybe ride our bikes or take a hike depending on how everyone feels. I’ll spend every minute I can with them. It’s a vacation I can’t wait to take.
While I’m taking some time off to be with my family, I’ll still respond to email, but only once a day. I’ll return any phones calls in the morning before my day gets started and my amazing transaction coordinator, Juli will handle any escrow issues that may come up, something she does whether I’m on vacation or not.
I look forward to spending time with my family and enjoying a quick summer vacation, right here in my own backyard. What will you do this summer to make the most of your free time? Will you take a vacation in your own backyard too?
Lake Tahoe! It’s the place to be this summer!
