Where are you in Tahoe?
We go to Homewood every year. I 've done many paintings and drawings
there. I always forget how beautiful the lake is. Last year it was warm
enough to go swimming on the east shore. Amazing, since the water is
soooooo cold.
We love it! and so do the bears. They are very friendly. Freaked me out
2 years ago.

Hope this helps,
