lake tahoe california: Are you taking Life for Granted? - 03/22/16 09:50 AM
As I was in conversation with several members of the ActiveRain network over the phone today my mind started to race around with memories and so much more.
Many of us live our lives with 2nd and 3rd chances in life, whether it be in business, love, marriage, friendship and so much more, and some of us only get one chance.
I would like everyone to step back for a moment and really think about "WHY" you are here, and what you really want from life.
Do you really love family and friends around you?
Do you really express positive energy around you?
Are you happy … (25 comments)

lake tahoe california: Vegas Bob continues to think more & more about retirement ;o) - 04/30/14 10:51 AM
      Wednesday, April 30, 2014 Vegas Bob continues to think more & more about retirement ;o)  
Robert "Vegas Bob" Swetz has been thinking so much about his businesses, selling Real Estate, working construction, taking videos and photographs, networking, etc.
Vegas Bob wants to enjoy life more, spend more time traveling and seeing the world. For the last 5 years VB has been really "Pushing the Envelope" with networking, blogging, taking videos/photographs, selling Real Estate, construction work ... and for what? Exposure? More business?
VB doesn't need any more exposure, and as for business, well business is great but VB … (11 comments)

lake tahoe california: Vegas Bob needed some "FRESH AIR" around here after this weekend - 10/16/11 05:06 PM

The last couple of days around Activerain have been a little negative, I am not sure if it's something in the air, the planets or what?
So Vegas Bob went strolling through his photos he took at Lake Tahoe several months ago, and remembers this one quite well. When VB took this photo down by the shore line he was enjoying the scenery and "FRESH AIR" ...
And I can just imagine that these people in the boat were doing the same.
I also wanted to share with everyone viewing this photograph that I did not change any color, … (23 comments)

lake tahoe california: Who enjoys the "Simple" things in Life? You may want to read & view this post ... ;o) - 10/11/11 12:18 AM

Even though many may believe that Vegas Bob is a complex person living the "Jet Set" in Las Vegas Nevada, the truth is VB enjoys the "Simple" things in Life!
I have always enjoyed the "Simple" things in Life and will most likely never change, why change a good thing?
I enjoy playing Volleyball at Lake Tahoe like in the photo (above) and swimming in a beautiful swim pool like in the photo (below) and so many more things in life.
By my experiences in life, my travels and love for nature this has caused me to enjoy the … (16 comments)

lake tahoe california: Relaxing in the sun at Lake Tahoe with about 3000 feet of shoreline to ourselves - 08/06/11 08:07 PM

 At about 12:00 noon on Saturday Nu Nu, Sherry and myself were looking for a nice beach to relax at Lake Tahoe. This was our 5th day at Lake Tahoe and with school still out it is quite busy even on the weekdays. But today being the weekend it was packed even by noon.
 So as we looked for a parking spot inside the parks, beaches, etc., there were no places to park. We found an area up on the road where we almost parked, to find out later that the cars were getting tacked for no parking for … (24 comments)

 Today is our 5th day at Lake Tahoe and our little vacation will be coming to an end tomorrow, so today will be another fun day playing in the sun.

  I was viewing some of my photographs that I have taken in the last several days of our vacation at Lake Tahoe, and when I came across this photo I couldn't believe my eyes.
 Nu Nu and Sherry were sitting on this HUGE rock down by shore with their feet soaking in the cool clear waters. When I looked down at them with the view of the lake, the clear aqua-blue waters I could not help but snap a photo.
 We are headed to the beach now to ride wet-bikes because the mornings on the lake are usually … (18 comments)

lake tahoe california: Vegas Bob really wishes he could write you a post about RE but I am still at Lake Tahoe! - 08/03/11 08:44 PM

 I hope everyone at AR and some of the other networks aren't angry because I haven't been posting about Las Vegas, Real Estate and similar subject matter.
  We are just having so much fun at Lake Tahoe and I don't mean to rub it in! I am doing my best to capture the moment and beauty of Lake Tahoe with photographs and videos.
  We are headed to Pyramid Lake tomorrow just north of Reno/ Sparks Nevada to take a look and find out if it's worth photographing, and then it's back to Tahoe so stay tuned … (19 comments)

lake tahoe california: "The Sun resting on some Tree Branches at Lake Tahoe" - 12/23/10 11:58 PM

This very unusual photograph was taken up at ‘Lake Tahoe’ several years ago when the fires were burning up many areas of California. What I find interesting about the photograph is the Sun looks like it’s resting on the tree branches take a break or something. There was no trick photography done here and I think this photo is a ‘Classic’ …

 "Good Night" Activerain from Lake Tahoe - Lady playing catch with her best friend ...
 I captured this lady at Lake Tahoe playing catch with her dog at sunset and took around 20 photographs, one after another. The sun was captured behind the lady and her best friend and the photographs are priceless. After I shot the photos I finished photographing the sunset at Lake Tahoe and wanted to give the lady my business card thinking she might be interested to viewing the photos I took.
