It was taken in August of 2006. We were on vacation in Tahoe with my sister and her family. That's our cousin Seesa, Lolly and Frostine having a snack on the beach. I'm not sure if they are pointing at the bird or something else. Lolly and Frostine were 4 years old and Seesa was almost three years old. I hope the three of them have a lifetime's worth of memories from all these family vacations together.
That was our last summer vacation in Tahoe before we started going to Bass Lake instead. Tahoe is great, but the water is freezing. While the beaches are scenic, they are not so great for spending the whole day there building sand castles and swimming. We would rent a boat for one or two days, but it was so cold and windy out on the lake that no one had that much fun. You had to wear a wet suit if you wanted to water ski, too much work in my opinion.
At Bass Lake we spend everyday out on the boat or swimming off our dock. We also like feeling like we are somewhere less populated than the Bay Area. It feels more like a traditional lake vacation.
Here are the six people I'm tagging. Leave a comment with a link if you decide to play along.
OK, I broke meme protocol and tagged eight people. I'm a rebel.
