summer love /

June 13, 2012

Lake Wenatchee…For one week that summer of 1971, my family and Paul Pfeiffer’s rented side-by-side cabins along its placid shores. And that’s how the beginning of the episode 70 titled “The Lake” of the t.v. series, “The Wonder Years” begins. To me, this episode perfectly captures the moment and that intense feeling of a summer crush that can quickly escalate into you having to spend every second of time together because you know its fleeting. As you watch Kevin Arnold struggle with this, you instantly remember what it felt like to be captivated by someone over your summer break.
