Visit to the Lake Tahoe Consours d’Elegance

14022136_10208453440725379_705959455386896290_nWe enjoyed the 44th annual Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance this week on the West Shore, featuring the Chris-Craft racer.

We encountered some local residents, including John Chase, general manager of Nevada City Winery; Chuck Shea of Penn Valley, who had restored a Chris-Craft; and Eve Diamond and her husband; Eve retired from the Rood Center this summer.
