It's our Quebec's friends living in Carlsbad that invited us to discover Carrillo Ranch last year. It was in November. It was a beautiful place, so typical and so exotic for us.

Another lovely thing of going there is we got to drive on Salmon Falls road. It's a sinuous scenic drive that both Mister T and I love very much.Read More

Here it is, finally! And while the ski season is still in full swing, here is my post about skiing around Lake Tahoe. While I have been skiing at two resorts only—and you'll see why I say only at the end of this post—I thought you might enjoy the pictures and movies I shot while on the road or on the slopes!Read More
