I know I focus a great deal on the history of the Lodge and George Whittell and I realized I am very overdue for a post about the grande dame of Lake Tahoe, the Thunderbird. Currently we are still raising funds to refurbish her engines; for more information on that project click the following link: http://thunderbirdtahoe.org/yacht-engine-overhaul
My goal for this post is to share some photographs you might not have seen before, so I dug into the archives and really explored the time when Bill Harrah owned her (1962-1978) and kept her at his Villa Harrah at Skyland Manor on the lake. Here are just a few and more to come, I hope you enjoy!
PS – Next year is her Diamond Jubilee and we will have lots of fun things planned!
