Tahoe Today: Tahoe Sparkles Once Again
I’ve said it before and I will say it again: Tahoe is the best place to be in the summer, in the fall, in the winter and spring. It’s been a long time coming. Tahoe is so alive this summer with the Tahoe Celebrity Golf Tournament live on television for all the world to see. Lots of celebrities and entertainment galore: the Maroon 5 concert, Robin Williams, David Steinberg and so much more. Boating, swimming, golfing – what more can one ask for? The weather really doesn’t get much better than this for the summer. There are two places in the United States right now with great weather: Tahoe and Hawaii are both flourishing.
The last time I remember when the lake being this busy was before the bomb went off at Harveys in 1980. I was a dealer at Harveys for many years, dealing seven hands every weekend. Time moved on and we barley made it in our town. So many of us were forced to leave the lake; however, the lucky ones have made it through once again. And let me tell you, it’s a challenge to live here. One has to be resourceful in many ways in order to survive. I compare Tahoe to a Hawaiian rainbow – one never knows where the rainbow begins and where it ends.
I will never forget in my heart of hearts why I moved here. Besides the beauty of the lake and the blue skies with white puffy clouds, one really never gets bored living in these parts. There is always something to do. Hiking, walking, fishing – they all have their place at the lake.
My favorite thing is to boat on the lake and catch some sun rays; to others it’s skiing the moguls, but you know, even if you want to find a spot in the woods, sit under a tree read a book and just chill, Tahoe is the place to be.
I was so lucky last weekend. I bought tickets to see the Beach Boys, since I spent many a year in Los Angeles listening to their records being played on the radio. I decided this would be a great time to see The Beach Boys. From what I understand, they have made Tahoe their last stop in their North American Tour. I thought to myself, maybe this would be the very last time I would get to see them, so I splurged for the ticket. And I mean splurged. What a great concert. It seemed everyone in the audience was a spry senior, including myself, as the Beach Boys transported me back to memory lane. I loved watching the old footage of the Beach Boys from their school days and, when Mike Love was talking to the audience, he made a point to say he graduated from Dorsey High School in Los Angeles.
Wait a minute. I graduated from Dorsey High school as well. I had a flashback. I seemed to remember going to the school dances and watching bands play. Could it have been the Beach Boys?
Mike Love graduated in 1959; I graduated in 1965. I called my ex and he informed me that yes, we use to dance to the band when we were kids.
We had a great time and, when it was all over, my husband and I walked to our car, watching all the tailgaters in the parking lot listening to the Beach Boys. I realized that was Tahoe style. I will tailgate next time as well.
