As one would expect from the Ritz Carlton, this Residence Club has everything. Our residence was lovely, with a view of the mountain. I can only imagine what it would look like in winter, because the ski lifts were a stone’s throw from our balcony. I could imagine all the snow and the skiers dashing down the mountain and then going back up. The Aspen Trees were just beginning to change color, and they shimmered within our view.
Lake Tahoe is wonderful. I usually get altitude sickness, but this time, I didn’t . A little short of breath, yes. After all, it is 7,000 feet up from sea level, and I live mostly at sea level. Randy’s been a little breathless, too, but he checked his spirometer numbers (a lung capacity exercise) and those numbers are even better than they were in Dallas a few weeks ago. I think the fresh air and walking for the last couple of weeks have really exercised both him and his lungs. He is still a little weak, but that’s to be expected. Eleven months ago he couldn’t even walk, and now he’s walking some steep hills and a lot of stairs. Good for us both!
