If you do it two years in a row, is it a tradition? If so, it’s one I like and intend to keep.

B and I met C in Reno again this August, intent on enjoying a revisit: Jake’s on the Lake, Sterling’s, the arboretum. Add in the Sparks marina and a trip to the ballpark to watch the Reno Aces, and you’ve got one fine vacation!
