FRIDAY, JUNE 23
The next leg of my journey was a bit longer - 287 miles from Bastrop to Athens. I spent one night at Lake Athens Marina RV Park. Lake Athens is a pretty little lake but the RV park is a bit barren -- quite a contrast from Bastrop State Park. The owners recently planted about a hundred trees, so it will be much nicer a few years from now. I had the fried catfish dinner at their restaurant -- and couldn't believe I ate the whole thing!
