As Summer rolls around, I always start thinking Lake Tahoe...  This will be the 40th straight summer that I've been going up there and I can't wait.

Lake Tahoe is the second largest alpine lake in the world and the crisp, cool water is about the most exhilarating swim there is.

My Grandfather bought a series of lakefront cottages the same year I was born and it has been a summer tradition for us ever since.  That tradition continued with my own girls and now West.

One of our favorite things to do these days is to take the boat over to Sand Harbor (pictured above), anchor and lounge all day long.  We always bring a picnic lunch and play the "Swim for Treasure Game".  In this crystal clear water, you don't need a dive mask or goggles.  The average visibility is like 50 feet.

The nice thing about Pine Cove in Tahoe is that it never really seems to change.  For me, it will always be Dreemie...
