I lived on such a lake, once, in the 70s. Bergan beach just east of Interlaken, new york. Just down the beach a mile or so from Rod Serling's summer home where he wrote most of his scripts for the TWILIGHT ZONE. I can see how one could be so creative there. I met him once, shook hands with him, he was sitting in a chair facing the lake, about 20 feet from it, on a point of gravel below the cliff, under his cottage. A script in hand.
Cayuga Lake, is where this was.
no wonder the finger lakes, i read, has been the birthplace of many writers and religions. At least two or three, spiritualism and mormonism, has been born here! Woman's rights movement too!
