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. The boys spent their time moving rocks and creating a dam, even finding baby fish to carefully observe. Søren 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.
