Got Wood?????







Ah yes, I thought the title would grab the attention of those with a less wholesome disposition!!

I mean real wood, silly! Pure unadulterated, beautiful wood from trees hundreds of years old, trees that have stood silently by as we toil to alter a landscape which is already totally perfect. Trees that watch over the marvelous lake and swaddle the mountains against the elements. They grow majestically up, up, up reaching for their own delicious portion of sunlight, stretching taller and taller to gently brush the azure skies. The wood is strong yet so soft, hardy yet often vulnerable, taking it's place in the landscape, helping to create a magnificent back drop to the dazzling colors created by the water and the earth coming together in one breath taking experience; the experience that is Lake Tahoe. The masterpiece which truly is God's own creation, a mindbogglingly wondrous attack on the senses, if you leave there unmoved then you surely are dead in the head.

One thing is for certain, it's not a place from which you depart saying "what's next?". You will feel invigorated, excited and completely in awe of this world in which we live, there's only one question burning in your mind, "when will I be able to return?".

This post is dedicated to my new fabulous friends of BCR to whom I am totally indebted..thank you, thank you from the very bottom of my heart.

Nope, no wood here. of either variety and it's making me quite cranky. The photographs are very soothing. An excellent way to greet the day.

Now, you know that I would show up! I love wood! I saw a girl on the beach and she pulled a log out of the water and gave it to me. I love it when a girl in a bikini gives me wood!

On a serious note, when I lived at the Jersey shore, we used to make things out of driftwood!
