Portfolio & Products and services

For years, I resisted at any time taking a getaway unless it focused on almost nothing but SCUBA diving. How items have improved.

More than the Thanksgiving holiday getaway, Kendra and I determined on a lengthy weekend up about Lake Tahoe. The low cost lodging and straightforward obtain to many unique taking pictures areas helped engage in a aspect in our selection. Becoming shut to casinos and a multitude of Safeways, Subways, and Starbucks was an sudden surprise.

For our very first working day, we obtained up at 6am to finish packing and get to Tahoe by lunch time, thus allowing for ourselves loads of time to scout out and obtain Bonsai Rock. It seemed like a superior put to get started as the climate forecast identified as for worsening wind and possible snow showers as the weekend progressed. Stephen Oachs experienced pointed out one thing about reflections and wind, and yeah they really don’t blend.

Kendra is the GPS queen, and she loaded up a bunch of places for us to look at out. As we drove about the lake, she would randomly tell me how fast I was driving by wanting at her GPS. As we handed Sand Harbor, I understood Bonsai Rock was shut and told Kendra to search out the window for it as it is down a reasonably steep incline from the highway.

“But the GPS states we have four more miles”, she mentioned. “No”, I replied,”it’s only about half a mile or so from Sand Harbor”. At that instantaneous, I hear “there it is!” and the GPS chimes in that we experienced reached our desired destination. Funny how four miles can be lined in thirty seconds. Excellent occupation GPS.

So this is my reflections shot, you won’t see quite a few more reflections from me out of this journey. The climate forecasters were very exact.

I did select up a pair new toys in advance of the journey. Just one currently being a Singh-Ray Gold-N-Blue polarizer. This polarizer is like supplying a drug addict an limitless provide of funds and producing them immune to the lawful program. I seldom took this filter off as it was a good chance to see what it could do. I felt I required this very little “preface” in get to help clarify some of the much out and whacky shades that I will be putting up around the subsequent 7 days or two. And if you really don’t know about the Gold-N-Blue polarizer by Singh-Ray, examine more here.

I hope everyone experienced a good lengthy weekend, and I will be gradually catching up with you all around the subsequent couple times!
