I wish we could have more beach time at Lake Tahoe. I really love it there. There is something truly magical about that place. I always feel better after being there. So I am sharing our last beach photos for this year.
The water is still low, and we really need a good wet Winter this year to help recover from this drought. One interesting thing about a drought is that it allows one to see further into the Lake’s depths. Lake Tahoe has experienced droughts in the past and it will experience them again in the future. This is just part of the cycle of nature. It’s when the cycle does not return back to the moisture laden years that it becomes a concern. Let’s hope this Winter will prove to be refreshing for the Lake as well as the whole surrounding area.
We spent the September day at Sand Harbor, which is my favorite beach area up there. The giant granite boulders are really sticking out, but the seagulls don’t seem to mind or the young children that had plenty of shallow water to frolic in. The divers didn’t seem to mind the shallow water either. They returned back to the icy depths below several times during the day.
So I took lots of pictures to remember the day and to make sure that I had good ones to share since I have an average everyday camera that works pretty good. I am not a professional photographer, but I do appreciate a well composed image, and I assume my audience also appreciates good photos as well. 😉 I hope you will enjoy the last day at the beach.

The water was so lovely and clear. Notices how the sunlight seems to ripple through the water.
