Last weekend we went on a 2 night campout in the high desert in a town called Valyermo. The weather was warm, day and night. The campsite http://bigrockcreekcamp.com/ was a former movie star hangout during the Prohibition period and is now used as a family campsite complete with olympic size swimming pool, tennis court and other recreational activities. The 15 or so scouts and families participated in a rope walk, high altitude zip line, tomohawk throw, fishing, BB guns and hiking. Their favorite was the scary stories and smores around the campfire.
Here is Nikhil going down the Zip Line. It is 480 feet to the bottom:
Here is Vikram climbing to the top of the launch pad:
Here is Annika navigating the Low Ropes course:
I just got back from a business trip to Geneva. We had the most amazing food every night including dinner at Patara, La Perle du Lac and a winery. Patara is an expensive Thai restaurant next to the Angleterre hotel. The Pearl is a wonderful Swiss restaurant overlooking the lake at the end of downtown geneva.
I also had the opportunity to spend a couple of hours at the Patek Philippe watch museum. If you have the opportunity to visit, it is well worth the 8 Franc entrance fee. It is 4 stories of watch making history. Included is the world’s most expensive watch – sold by Sotheby’s for $11 million and has 24 complications; everything from moonphase to stop watch to some pretty esoteric stuff.
I also saw my very first Ferrari Enzo driving down the street. It was a black Enzo zipping down the main Quai du Mont Blanc.
Last weekend we went to a puppy birthday party for one of Annika’s friends. There were 8 puppies and about 20 little girls. Annika had a great time and wanted to bring one of the puppies home.
