We spent Christmas week at my daughter and son-in-law's "second home" in Lake Tahoe. At 7,500 ft. above sea level it has a magnificent view of the lake. It has an indoor pool, sauna, jacuzzi, movie theater (seats 25), wine cellar and more. As you can imagine, we had a most relaxing time.

Here's the entry gate.

Hi Walter, happy New Year!!

I love the first shot. Looks very peaceful, but cold.

It could be just because of resizing, but the contrast looks a bit harsh. Of course, this is just MHO:G

That's a hell of a second home.

When I was in high school, my folks owned a cabin in Meyers on the south shore of Lake Tahoe. However, it didn't look anything like this. It had a deck on the second floor but no view. It was comfortable and warm, a great place to celebrate Christmas.

I somewhat envy the people who live in this home but I also relish the time spent in our cabin at Tahoe.

Great shot, by the way.

Cal
