Duck Swimming to Shore

Here are two videos of a duck that swam to the shore that’s on my families property on a lake near Lake Tahoe. The duck seemed to expecting food and this took place on a late September evening in 2014 before colder weather had settled in for the season.

I’ve looked through some photographs that I’ve taken over the last couple of years looking for a series of photographs that I took with my iPhone or Canon camera while I was staying at Lake Tahoe. I took this series of photos back in the Fall of 2014, apparently, I didn’t back up my phone with these specific photos with my dogs while Lily Lake near Fallen Leaf Lake in the Sierra Nevada’s. They were on my phone that I wrecked in the fall of 2014 and couldn’t and wasn’t able to use the contents of the phone; let alone to erase the phone before I was able to send it in after I got the replacement phone. Another possibility is that I might have deleted these specific photo’s but I doubt that I did that.

An old Fire Pit that is no longer being used that is made out of stone..

An Old Fire Pit

Here is some photographs of an old fire pit at my families place at South Lake Tahoe. Used to use this fire pit up to the mid 1980’s.

I swept away the top layer of pine needles to expose the old fire pit so I could take a photo of it from different angles. The fire pit hasn’t been used in over 30 years. As far as I know there’s no plans to use it ever again – giving the fire danger of the region.

Though, what I would like to do with it is to “dress it up” with benches and a table in the middle that would re-purpose the spot to eat outdoors.

There are a lot of things that I want to do with the place that I stayed at last year and it come’s down to money and time (another post for another time).

Tree’s and Saplings

Here are some photo’s of trees and sapling, along with sunlight coming through some trees.
