The great outdoors

On Sunday I drove with my boyfriend up to Big Bear in California.  Big Bear is known for its skiing but is also awesome in the summer with the big lake and friendly people.  We met a great couple  who volunteered at a local art gallery from San Diego who had just moved to Big Bear the winter before (worst winter in years) and told us all the good places to eat.  

Our hotel was a cabin and they were all themed rooms. The owner of the cabin came to pick us up because we were a bit lost,  It's funny when you print up the directions and the second to last turn of the directions is off and you can't find a detailed map in town.  We were only a block or two away but the owner drove over to get us.  My boyfriend booked a craft cottage but the manager gave us a good deal on a room with a spa tub so we took that.  We ended up with the crystal cave cabin and it was wonderfully cheesy. It was dark inside so you had to turn the lights on to  see everything and the bed was the only furniture.   The fireplace had real bones on it and stalactite were coming down from the ceiling. and the icing on the cake was the cave shower was huge.  We both giggled about the room the entire trip.  

I made paper dolls during the down time, we also swam in the lake (where we were attacked by seaweed), took the ski lift up the mountain and we went hiking.
