Yes, we are back. It's the human speaking. We enjoyed a beautiful, yet short, vacation that started in Lake Tahoe where we stayed in the North Lake Tahoe area for 2 days, took the very scenice Highway 395 from Lake Tahoe and visited Mono Lake and the beautiful tufas, took drive to equally picturesque Tioga Pass to Yosemite where we took a short visit, then left Yosemite for Groveland where friends loaned us the use of their mountain cabin. What a nice getaway spot. The next day we went back to Yosemite this time to Hetch Hetchy Reservoir - the one that supplies the water for San Francisco and saw the devastation of last year's Rim Fire. We took a short hike before driving home.
I find it tougher and tougher to take vacations leaving the kitties behind, even though I know they are well cared for and probably even spoiled. At night I miss Emma sleeping in between or on top of my legs. Needless to say, both the husband and I had a tough time sleeping.
Now we're back and we hope to get back to regular programming, especially visiting you sweet kitties.
