Divers at the lake

Post by James »

Anyone here ever dive the lake?

I was at Lake Minnewaska in September of 1974. My mother was hired as a bookkeeper, and I took the bus down to NP every school day (to start my freshman year of high school at New Paltz High). We were only there for that one month.

I have many fond, and not so fond, memories of living there: one of them though was of watching a party of divers entering the lake.

Now, as an adult, and a diver, I always remember that day - and wonder what the lake looked liked from under the surface.
