Some days we just prefer the quiet sound of nature. We found a small public beach at Lake Tahoe between a couple of private beaches and made it our hang out for a day. Sand Harbor was pretty crowded so it was a nice escape. There were only a few other people to share with while the boys explored a very slow moving McKinney Creek.Β The boys spent their time moving rocks and creating a dam, even finding baby fish to carefully observe. SΓΈren kept calling the fish, “lizards”, and Aiden became quite good at catching them. I tried to offer my rock-skipping skills but neither of them were interested. Most of the day was simply spent enjoying the company of the lake during the summer, a strong contrast to our last winter visit.

  1. Love finding secluded areas to spend time with the loved ones. I cannot stand a busy beach or place when I plan on relaxing. Srsly.

  2. Ahhh, I miss Lake Tahoe! When I lived in Washington State, a group of friends and I would go up there right before summer was ending! I loved your motion picture also! Great photos!

  3. What a great adventure! Love the reflection photos in particular, and the silver fish catch. πŸ˜€ Have you seen the new app by Instagram, Hyperlapse? It’s for iOS only, but it’s a time-lapse motion-stablization video capturing app, and it’s an awesome way to smoothly capture moments like your car ride. πŸ™‚


    1. Yes, I have it. I just haven’t had the time to do something good with it. I think tomorrow will present a good opportunity. πŸ™‚ The car ride was 3.5 hours though, I’m not sure if that would max it out.

  4. Sigh. Looks wonderful and relaxing. Beautiful photos – i think the one of your little guy in the background with you holding a fish in front is my favorite though.
