It's been a little quiet on the blog this weekend as Mr. Rural and I went away on our first adult only vacation! To celebrate our eight year wedding anniversary (May 1st) we went away to our family vacation house at Shaver Lake in the Sierra Mountains. What a beautiful weekend.
Friday we had a great dinner at The Trading Post (a local favorite), then Saturday we visited the local gallery and some other shops and then set off on a hike. The Balsam hike, recommended by the sporting goods shop, took us to a man made lake and we were literally the only people for miles. It was perfect weather for hiking and for our dogs to take a swim. This is the first time our rescued Golden Retriever had been swimming with us and she proved a champ.
