Thomas and Camilla February 2018 Date Day (a wee bit late). My phone got so cold that I lost all photos from our date except one!
The one of Thomas with his ice cream from Icecycle Creamery is the only photo that survived. That was our first stop.
Second stop was one of our favorite spots … Audrey Harris Park for Thomas to eat his ice cream with the amazing view. Then we walked the entire loop in the snow. We had it all to ourself, we were frozen, we had a beautiful time enjoying one another’s company, and I took lots of pictures. No matter. I’ve got one!
Then!!! For dinner. More birthday yummies for me plus a toast to the flights of Where Would You Fly.
I knew I was saving this one wine glass for something!! Wine glasses were made for vegan root beer floats!! Coconut Bliss Vanilla Ice Cream smothered with an amazing root beer. Served with a vegan burger topped with sautéed sweet onions, crimini mushrooms, hot & sweet jalapeños, kalamata olives, with a slather of vegan kale, cashew & basil pesto on two slices of Italian bread. I’m full!!
First stop: We shared Parmesan sea salt fries and jalapeño cheddar bread. Dessert of Mexican wedding cookie for me and gingerbread bar for her. Here’s to 15 and a half years of once a month Date days!!
Second stop – One of our favorite parks and walking trails for throwing the frisbee and a beautiful, peaceful, and quiet walk. xoxo
Last stop – Quick and short detour to admire this view!!! WOW!!
Next! – A short walk. My favorite part of our date!!
Next stop – Sledding! Thomas is the small speck near the top of the hill in the first picture. He had great fun!
Second stop – Kings Beach … We’ve never stopped at this little park! Just beautiful!! I just love having conversations with Thomas. More and more they are philosophical and I feel so inept! HA! Even though! I adore it!!
First stop – India Kabob & Curry as he requested Indian food. We had India Kabob on a date day years ago so he requested a revisit!
Two plates of assorted vegetarian dishes for me. Loved the peas and potatoes. That was my favorite!!
First stop: Washoe Lake. I’ve only been here maybe two other times with no wind. How gloriously beautiful.
I truly needed a deep dose of Mama Gaia today and this was perfect for grounding and processing.
Thomas walked barefoot and dug in the sand. It was perfect for him too. He and Lillian had a huge argument as we were readying to leave.
I sat down, took off my shoes and socks, and slowly buried my feet and hands in the soft, cool sand. I was instantly relaxed and brought into this wonderful moment with Thomas. It’s difficult to even find the words to describe.
Last stop: Ice Cream!! Vegan Coconut Mint and Just Nog for Thomas and Vegan Coconut Mint and Just Chocolate for me! Of all the flavors I’ve ever tasted here, the Coconut Mint tops the list now! Love the texture and flavor – tastes like a Jr Mint candy, only better! We ate our ice cream with the amazing view at Audrey Harris Park.
Thomas also had a half sandwich and I had a cup of potato salad and macaroni salad.
