Lakeside is one of the religious summer camp communities that popped up in the context of the Chautauqua Movement of the late 19th century, and one that survives today. While not as large, elaborate, or ecumenical as Chautauqua, Lakeside is still charming in its distinctly Methodist way, with 100+-year-old guest houses like the one in which the eight of us stayed, buildings that tend to look like churches even when they aren't and, of course, a lake.
We stayed up until 2:30 the first night, discussing The Election. We walked all over the place (several times) on Saturday. We went out for dinner and watched The Witches of Eastwick, a fairly ridiculous movie that fit our mood well. We drank very moderately and talked excessively.
