It's the stuff tourist towns are made of - esoteric shops with lots of eye candy. With an hour to spend after a day of skiing, Mike suggested wandering around downtown Truckee. We reluctantly agreed to go for a stroll, exhausted from the day, but more exhausted from the thought of heading straight into I-80 traffic. When I spied the glass store I immediately envisioned my two blond bulls causing havoc in this china shop. My nerves subsided after I tied their hands behind their backs (kidding) - after they were so entertained by just looking that I realized I didn't have much to fear. So take note, curators of the next great children's museum, to include lots of light, colors and sparkly things. And thank you glass shop in Truckee for the diversion, it was certainly a delight.
