We went for a week of R & R to Zephyr Point, Lake Tahoe (on the south eastern shore on the Nevada side). It is only 1 1/2 hours away from where I live in Cedar Ridge, but feels like a world away. Below are a few pictures of Sand Harbor on the north eastern shore. Sand harbor is where boats launch and sandy beaches are all around. They also have a wonderful outdoor theater. Where else in the world can you watch a play and see a sunset with a spectacular view of Lake Tahoe behind you?
The two piles of rocks (above pic) on either side of the kyacker are usually covered to within 2 feet of the top. They are there to warn larger boats to slow waaay down as they come into shore. Below is another area of Sand Harbor. The boardwalk is a wonderful wheelchair accessible trail that travels one mile around the point in a circle for all sorts of wonderful vistas. Check out the largest bolder in the left corner. There is a definite line 2/3 of the way up. 5 years ago, the water was that high. Look at the large outcropping of rocks to the right and right below the boardwalk. They are dark gray at the top. Mid way down they lighten in color. Yep, the water has been that high with very little sandy beach showing.
One more view of Sand Harbor.
On to Cabin A below. It’s so cute, so little, and so no frills. BUT, we do have internet, and all the comforts of home, just not very fancy. Elevation here is 6,310 ft. Lake Tahoe, 22 miles long, 12 miles wide, and at the deepest point, approx. 1,625 ft. deep (that’s why it never freezes)
I apologize to all my faithful readers and all my new followers (from the Kaffe Fassett Collective) for not having my usual Friday post. Zephyr Point is a large retreat center with two huge hotel type places(on either end) and 42 cabins scattered all about, and while the first part of the week was SUPER quiet, from Thursday until yesterday, it was FULL (the hotel parts, not so much the cabins). And everyone wanted to use the internet. We could do nothing online for 3 days. That is why I’m late. Take care and we’ll meet again on Friday. Hugs, Heidi
