Saved the best til last: final Tahoe treasures

Standard

The last full day of exploring and treasure hunting took us around the north shore of Lake Tahoe and into the heart of Reno, Nevada, where we haggled a beat up Stradivarius viola and case dated 1739 from a fiesty antique dealer.  We haven’t a clue as to its true value but it makes beautiful sounds.  When I take it to a reputable music store I’ll let you know what I found out.

  1. I was 4 years old my first time in Mt Hermon. A missionary friend loaned us his cabin up the hill near the cross. It was the same time word got out that the missionaries, prominently Nate Saint, were murdered by the Auca indians in Equador. I remember in my 4 year old mind thinking the Auca Indians were just on the other side of the mountain.

    • Thank you! Yes, I totally loved everything about this trip and I am so excited about the Stradivarius!!! Can’t wait to get the bow updated and rozen. It will be fun to see what the violin store has to say about this find.”-]

  2. It makes me so happy to see the pictures of your fabulous trip. The flowers are lovely. I love Broom, the fragrance is heavenly. I was not sure what the animal was…was it a dog?
    I do hope that you have a violin which is worth many, many times more than you paid for it!

  3. I love hearing from you Karen! You are always so enthusiastic and encouraging. This was the perfect trip for photos. Everywhere I looked there was a feast for the eyes. That animal was a fun statue I’m guessing was a coyote. People had animal statutes in their yards everywhere. I’ m thrilled about the viola find. If nothing else it makes a fun story and I can learn how to play it. “-]
