Back at the campground we walked a few trails with views looking down on Lake Tahoe's Emerald Bay area. Throughout our weekend, as you can guess, I was most keen on my swims! Ready to go any distance, any time...just throw that ball!
Below at the little water-access-only cove we paddled to each day....
Loved playing on these granite boulders! And, a bit of running in the sand...
When motor boats weren't speeding by, the waters were pretty calm and nice for paddling. In my usual boat-riding position.... Quite an interesting band of rock cliffs. Can you see the daring fella on the boulder, photo right... Guess what he did! Youza!
We enjoyed camping and paddling with our friend Christina!
One of the days at our little beach...I met a new pal. You can see Maya waiting for me below...not much of a swimmer, but sure interested in playing each time I swam back to shore :) Maya came with her humans in the Mean Jean Tahoe motor boat! And, had a stylish life vest on!
On our paddle back to the campground beach one afternoon, we passed these lucky furpals. A classic ride, and superb backdrop.
We were also amazed at the cliff climbers!
I was not at all hesitant to swim out pretty far....even gave mom a few gasps when I swam fast and quite a distance towards a lone mallard on TWO different occasions..... I didn't hear any of her recalls...(opps!) I did turn around at some point after swimming way out....couldn't tell mom why I did what I did...but I guess I finally made the right choice to come back to shore...according to mom :)
