Go West, Young Coynes

We recently wrapped up a visit with the lovely Jen (Rosner) Coyne, the witty and supremely talented John Coyne, and the newest little Coyne, 22-month old Ellery Frances. 

Snacks at Donner Summit.

They stayed here at the Vintage Digs and we had fun times checking out Lake Tahoe, the Reno neighborhoods near our place, and Carson City, capital of Nevada.

We had great spring weather the whole time — sunny, temperatures in the 70s and low 80s with light breezes. Their timing was perfect.

Here are some of the highlights from the trip … Enjoy!

Sunny afternoon at Sand Harbor, east shore of Lake Tahoe.
Big boulders to climb on at Sand Harbor.

One thought on “Go West, Young Coynes

  1. Great pictures–especially Ellery’s sunglasses. Can’t wait to see all these places in July. Glad your weather was so great when you were there.
