One of our top Instagram posts in September was by @koblenzphotography. “As we
head into fall and winter, we look back at the beautiful summer we’ve had, and as we all
know, nothing beats a long summer night in Tahoe,” says Daniel Koblenz. “Summers in
Tahoe bring lifelong memories for all ages and it just warms our hearts when we are able
to be up there taking pictures and spending time with family and friends.” Want to see

Last Month’s Top Five
1 “Not-So-Haughty Yacht Clubs” Thought about
joining a yacht club but don’t actually have a boat? No
problem. Here are five unstuffy community gems that
are as fun to hang out at as they are to sail from.
2 “In a Pickle” Although wildly popular of late,
pickleball, which looks like a blend of tennis and
Ping-Pong, has been around for over 50 years; it was
created by a group of bored friends on Bainbridge
Island, Washington, in 1965.
3 “Concrete Beauty” Fashion editor Leah-Marie and
photographers Milan + Shannon brought fall’s top
fashions to life at Battery Yates in Fort Baker.
4 “Pizza Nation” Even though there are many styles
and tastes, when you’re traveling about the country
it’s always smart to try the local pie.
5 “Lunch Is Served” In Marin, school meals have
come a long way since the days of mystery meat.
Writer Carrie Kirby investigates.

Ever since Sir Francis Drake famously sailed to the area, Marin has had an
association with watercraft. Whether or not you’re lucky enough to own a boat
(or have a friend with one), a sizable part of the population here has a relaxed
relationship with sailing. Here we take a look at five yacht clubs that don’t require
fancy dress or a hefty initiation fee but do offer many ways to have a good time.
