I really enjoyed summers at Lake Schnabel with grandma & grandpa L, with the beach, the water, and the boating, even if Grandpa did make us wear life jackets. I have hazy memories of that lakeside community, of evenings spent with music and lights shimmering everywhere, everyone gathered outside sitting in chairs or around picnic tables. This summer community was a hold over from an earlier time, when people were their own entertainment. I have often wondered what would it be like to spend a week at a lake like that now - would the isolation caused by modern technology persist?
