Move Over Captain, I'll Take the Wheel
I'm on a boat!
Ty and I took a cruise on the lake aboard on old Mississippi river style paddle wheel boat called the Tahoe Queen. It was quite entertaining with a narrator dressed as Mark Twain providing background commentary about the history of the region.
During the ride, we visited the wheel house and Ty actually drove the ship. Luckily there were no accidents and we did not stray too far off course. As a reward for his efforts, the captain gave him one of the signal flags that had been hanging up on the ship which was very cool.
For some additional scenic photos of the lake that Dad shot from the boat and elsewhere, see my flickr set here.
