Bob and I just got back from a weekend at Lake Tahoe (CA) which is around 6000 feet elevation. They say that if you were to tip the lake and pour the water out (you would have to be the size of several mountain ranges and out of your mind) that the water would cover the state of California in about 15 inches of water. We could certainly use it. The lake is big and just about everyone was out on it this weekend.

Me, for one. Note that I am covered from head to foot by sunwear. . .that fair skin, you know. . .not particularly fashionable, but then I didn’t get sunburned! Bob says he can tell my kayak from a mile away because of my distinctive paddle style. Ahem. Or lack thereof. As I was leaving the shore a guy was on his knees on a surfboard paddling with his hands and he soon left me far behind.

We stayed in a condo surrounded by every type of Sierra tree and inhabited (they say) by bears and these cute chipmunks and bluejays.

Down on the beach at dusk at Carnelian Bay, watching the folks with their dogs and searching for heart shaped rocks to add to my new collection. Later I collected 18 inch long pinecones to bring home as well.
