Well here we are in beautiful Indian Lake with my sister under the sign. I love that these little towns are called Hamlets because it reminds me of English Shakespeare lingo(no pun intended on the play). Anyway, it was very cold that day but we are Huntley, Long Lake, Adirondack strong stubborn women, so cold, rain, etc., does not deter us if we want to do something. Is it a good trait? Maybe--sometimes good and sometimes not so good, but we'll take it with a smile.
I always remembered this place as the ice cream place, I think. On Memorial Day we had parades and fireman's competitions. They would close the streets in these little towns and the bands and fireman would compete. The fireman winners got water dumped over their heads. Hmmm, what prize. The bands got trophies. There was lots of ice cream for the kids and beer for the fireman. The Long Lake band had hot wool suits and Indian Lake and Long Lake had the same school colors==orange and black. I remember a beautiful majorette from Indian Lake. I think her name was Linda King and she twirled a fire baton. I was a young majorette star struck by her talent.
We also walked down Bennett Road all the way to the end looking for a way back up to Rt 28; however, it came to a dead end, but it was a neat country road just right for walking. I remember some Bennett's from school days. Wonder if this road is named after them.
Thank you, Bill, and my email friend from Indian Lake for your help. Please feel free to comment or correct me. I love feedback. Next walk is Newcomb. Stay tuned!
