South Lake Tahoe

South Lake Tahoe

For Labor Day weekend, Jeremiah & I went to South Lake Tahoe to celebrate my birthday (really late) since we just didn’t have time during my actual birthday. We intended to leave early in the morning at 6 AM, but we ended up leaving at 8 AM because we woke up late. We still ran on good time though!


We headed straight to Vikingsholm & Eagle Falls Trail. It was a little unbearable since I hadn’t hiked in such a long time. I really need to get back into it, but I can’t seem to find the time.
The views were absolutely stunning! It’s so beautiful in the Winter & the Summer. I also brought my heavy camera this time because I wanted to make more use out of it. It has been so long since I had to lug around a big camera.

Eagle Falls

The Eagle Falls trail was underwhelming to say the least. I guess it’s just better to go during the Winter!

Ice Cream

After the hike, we got ice cream & then headed to our hotel!

Hotel Becket

Our hotel was so cute & quaint! Definitely good enough for two people 🤗We freshened up & walked over to get Base Camp Pizza.

The wait time was so long that we got it to-go instead, which we didn’t mind because we took it back to the hotel & ate while we watched Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part I. Such a cozy night in ☺️

The Red Hut Cafe

Jeremiah & I slept in the next morning & watched Ghostbusters. Once we finally got up, we had breakfast at Red Hut Cafe. We’ve been there before during the weekend when Jeremiah’s cousin got married.

Secret Cove

After breakfast, we went back to the hotel, blew up the floaties, & headed to Secret Cove. Forewarning, it’s a nude beach! (no, we did not participate).
It was actually a bit too wild for me & I just wanted to chill & read my book, so we walked a little further down to another spot for us to relax.
Trying out my split-level photography skills, or well, lack thereof. So, if anyone wants to teach me, please do! I really want to get it down. I’m also not very skilled in photoshopping underwater color. I don’t know why I can’t find my groove with it. So, if anyone wants to teach me that too, that would be great! 🤗
These almost kind of look like it was taken with a 35mm underwater camera 😍 It wasn’t what I was going for, but I kinda like it.

After relaxing for a bit, we finally headed back.


We had dinner at Ten Crows BBQ. We also started watching this TV show on Amazon Prime called Jake Ryan. It’s pretty good so far!

& that wraps up our quick little weekend in Tahoe! I can’t wait to go back during the Winter ☺️ I really want to plan a snow trip with my family & all the kids. I think it would be so fun. I enjoyed Tahoe in the Winter with Jeremiah’s cousins so much that I want to do it with mine.
