The kids came to the lake in the summer to hunt turtles. They'd poke around the shoreline, hoping for signs of life. A glimpse of a shell, a bit of movement in the sand, a shadow passing through the water. The adults spent their time in the updated main cottage. They focused on barbeques and fireworks displays. They'd fish in the detached boathouse when it rained and then they'd take the boats out when it was dry. They held parties on the patio and stayed up late into the night with friends and family. They didn't know where the real adventure was. They didn't know the thrill of finding a turtle and watching him dip into the cool lake water. They didn't know the fun of escaping to the upstairs boathouse for a quick snack, maybe a quick nap, before returning to shore and starting the hunt all over again. Lake Wawasee is Indiana's largest natural lake and offers over 3500 acres of water and 25 miles of shoreline to enjoy boating, skiing, tubing, as well as great places to go by boat to dine.
