Frank Nyikos' place on Lake Papakeechie in Syracuse, Indiana

Lake Papakeechie

Frank Nyikos' place is on Lake Papakeechie at 9065 E. Circle Drive S. just south of Syracuse, in northeastern Indiana. It is a quiet little lake, just off Indiana State Highway 13, where all motor boats are banned.

It is a place of great serenity. You can look out over the water and see ducks swimming and a great blue heron standing on its long legs in a shallow place looking for fish to spear with his beak.

  Frank Nyikos had invited a large group of people over to eat hamburgers cooked on a charcoal grill on his porch. Frank is on the left and Glenn Chesnut is just sitting down on the right. In back (in the center) is Bob Peden from Goshen, Indiana.

  Another view of Lake Papakeechie. It is so quiet and serene that all you can hear are the birds singing in the trees. You can sit out on the grassy banks for hours, and meditate and be at peace.
