Back To California

Yep.  We went back to California.  But it's not what you'd think, no problems or emergencies with our granddaughters.  Nope.

Instead we went for a nice drive in our car around beautiful Lake Tahoe,

A perfect day to sightsee around this amazing lake, there were boats all over the crystal clear waters.  Can't say I'd blame anyone for sailing around the lake.  In fact, years ago I tried to get stationed here. There is a U.S. Coast Guard station on the lake because it is in two states, California and Nevada.  That job is the most desireable station in the whole Coast Guard.  And probably half of the Coasties put in for that billet.  I wasn't lucky enough to get that position.  Darn!

The mountains surrounding the lake still have lots of snow remaining, the lake is almost over full now, with the summer snow melt, it will get quite full.  Very different from the drought the previous several years where lake levels were at all time lows.

A few areas had signs of damage from a forest fire.

An island at the South end of the lake was very picturesque.  We remembered it from a previous visit more than 10 years ago when we flew here and rented a convertible to tour the area.

A nice day well spent, made us feel like we were on vacation.  Now today we're heading out for more adventures.

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.


  1. What a beautiful lake!! It's always fun to pretend to be on vacation!!
    Mike has seen Lake Tahoe but I haven't!!

  2. Looks like a beautiful area. We've never been there.

  3. Nice to see that you are enjoying some wonderful sights on your tour.

  4. It's been many, many years since I've been to Tahoe. It was with college buddies during those college years. So, I'm guessing about 10 years ago. :) Absolutely beautiful!

  5. Looks nice, should be in CA in about 10 days, if we keep to the plan:)
