Tahoe Gem

July 28-31, Lake Tahoe

A couple of days after getting home from Mexico we had a trip planned to Lake Tahoe. (Lovely to be a Blatter with time-shares!) We stayed for a couple of days at the Marriot Timber Lodge like last year, but thankfully the weather was better this year! The only day I had my camera was the day we went to our favorite little spot called Angora Lake. It's so fabulous and picturesque!
You have to take a little hike to get to it...(Uncle Scott came with us)...

Aggie looking shaggy!...

It's complete with canoe rentals and homemade lemonade and an ice cream stand...

Beautiful water and big rocks to play on...

Swims them to the jumping rock...

Still standing on the edge...

Here comes dad and Alex to help out...

John goes again...

Jake still trying to get up the nerve...

So close...(Alex coming to join him)...

Again...no jump!!

I seriously waited with my camera poised and they NEVER jumped. Seriously! John said it was scarier than it looked!
Great day...

Love this place!!

Beautiful spot. I would be terrified of the jumping rock, too, but John is a fabulous jumper! It's so great to see you, Annie, enjoying these wonderful getaways outdoors - camping and hiking and swimming and boating and roughing it - especially because you grew up so differently. We were not the outdoorsy family you guys have become. I'm really proud of you, and also a little jealous because it all looks SO FUN! Keep up the good work, and keep taking lots of pictures! Love you all so much,
Mom/Grandma
