Alex At Sandy Harbor At Lake Tahoe


Song:  The Hours

Artist:  Philip Glass






After Spooner Lake...
we then went back to Sand Harbor.

I had parked at the left most parking area...
and we then walked the paved pathway around the Harbor point.

This walkway connected many of the small beaches.










After Alex had played a little in the water...
we then walked around the point on the walkway.




















After we had walked all the way to the right of the beaches...
we sat for a while...and then we went back to the point to get something to eat and drink.





 There was a Shakespeare presentation going on in the amphitheater...
but I was only interested in the food stands just before the theater.   :)


After we had something to drink and eat...
we walked back to the rightmost beach to watch the sunset.



As it turned out...
it was an unremarkable sunset.

We knew it wouldn't be anything special when we had seen a cloudless day above the lake.




We then walked back to the leftmost beach...
got in the car...
and drove back to Reno.


On our way back home...
I stopped briefly at a lookout point with a commanding view of Lake Tahoe.



 Just before going down the other side of the mountains...
I stopped at another lookout point.

This time we could see all of Reno.


Just a few miles from home...
we stopped in at Chili's.


Alex had eaten a full rack of baby back ribs.

I just had a bowl of chili...
as I had a Tri-Tip sandwich at Lake Tahoe.

We had a nice day at the lake.

Today...
we just took it easy and rested.


Tomorrow...
I will take Alex to the DMV so he may take his Driver's Permit written test.

  1. Glad that Alex was able to take a break from his studies to enjoy the day at Tahoe. Such a beautiful area! Feels like all the stresses of the day would be forgotten when you are there. I especially like the big boulders in the water.

    Good luck with the driving lessons!

  2. We had a nice time there. We had also found a new biking and hiking area.

    As for the driving lessons...they are on hold for a week or so. Alex had failed the one test I hadn't thought to prepare for...the eye test! We went to the optometrist yesterday, and we then went glasses shopping. They should be ready in one week. We will then have to go back to the DMV.
