Love at the Lake.

Friday, August 6, 2010


"As it lay there with the shadows of the mountains brilliantly photographed upon its still surface, I thought it must surely be the fairest picture the whole world affords." - Mark Twain of Lake Tahoe, 1861

Several weekends ago, I joined Jenner, his dad and some of his lovely family for a perfect few days in Lake Tahoe. I had never been and, let me tell you, I was simply blown away by the beauty. With the exception of a few pockets of the world I was fortunate enough to visit in southern Africa, Lake Tahoe just may be the most beautiful place I've ever visited.










It was one of my favorite weekends in a really long time.

For days, we barbecued, paddle boarded (well, my clumsy and still handicapped self did not), kayaked, swam, read, watched movies, had long talks and longer laughs.

I can't wait to go back.
