    Kayaking

    July 14, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Today we woke up early because we went Kayaking. It was my second time, I did it in Princeville Ranch in Kauai. It was really cold it the morning, I had goosebumps!! The Kayaks were 2 person kayaks, me and Daddy got on one and Conor and Mammy went on another, and our instructor Sean went on a one person Kayak. Lake Tahoe is Americas 2nd deepest lake and the worlds 10th deepest lake! Apparently, the deepest the lake can go is 500m down! When we got on our kayaks and kayaked app.1.5 miles, we saw a big house. This house is called Thunderbird Lodge and a billionaire George Whittle bought a LOT of land (2000acres I think) in the early 1900. Whittle was planning to make a summer-hotel with a skiing place, casinos and stuff like that, but for he's love of animals he is recluse, and bought a elephant. Whittle died in 1969, and his family sold the building to the state and you are now allowed to have weddings there. Sean said that some people think that Whittle still haunts the building....🐘👻👻👻💀☠️ We got to see Whittles HUGE house and his elephants BIG stable. After we passed the house, we had a stop at Chimney beach, where the water was freezing cold!! I ate an energy bar and we switched partners, and I was with Mammy. There were boats, so we got big waves and I was scared that we would tip over. We finally reached the destination and we kayaked 10k!!
    That was fun and next time I hope I dont tip over.

    Hidden Beach, Lake Tahoe

    August 23, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 79 °F

    Headed out in Kevin's boat to Hidden Beach. Water makes it seem like you are in the Caribbean, until you get in!

    Finished the day with a hike to a viewpoint of the lake from Kevin's house. Last picture is of Kevin's house so you can see how they are all built up the mountain here.

    A great day in Lake Tahoe!Read more

    Lake Tahoe

    July 15, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    This morning we woke up early because we were going to Kayak at Lake Tahoe. Daddy got a mail from the instructor yesterday saying that we had to be there at 7:45am and telling us about the stuff that we should bring. I was freezing cold and I couldn't change into my swimming 🏊 clothing. I finally changed into my swimming 🏊 clothing, but I was still cold! So I got my new jacket and wore it. I was very sleepy 😴 so l slept in the car. We arrived at Lake Tahoe.
    But there was a huge traffic jam! We waited for 30 minutes then the parking lot gate opened. We parked the car and stepped outside. It was so cold! We followed daddy to our instructor and the Kayaks. The instructor's name was Sean. Me and mammy got in a kayak and daddy and Maya got in a kayak. We were heading to a beach called chimney beach. We kayaked for 4km and saw a huge house. Sean said it was the house of captain whittle who was a very wealthy man. He bought a lot of land on the coast of Lake Tahoe. He was thinking of developing a resort and a casino but he became a recluse which is a person that preferred to live alone. He also bought a pet elephant 🐘! Some people say that captain whittle 's house is haunted! 👻 👻👻We arrived at chimney beach. If you are wondering why it is called chimney beach, it is because there is a real chimney on the sand! The water 💦 was freezing cold and I swam in the freezing cold water!
