Off this morning as planned around 9:15 a.m. Clear skies and about 65 degrees all the way to Macon, Georgia. And to campsite # 23 that I’d reserved in the Tobesofkee Recreation Area. More on the campground in a moment.
Travel time today was only 4 hours, 15 minutes. Not as long as expected. Though nearly all of the trip was along four-lane interstates. Not the most interesting type of highway to travel.
Speaking of which, major renovations and improvements are under way here. Above you see the frame of what will become a new picnic table. The frame will surround a solid clay foundation that then will be surfaced with a pea gravel topping. Providing a weather-resistant area for a sturdy table and benches anchored in concrete. Done the way it should be!
The Tobesofkee Lake, and this Recreation Area, are owned and maintained by Bibbs County. Not state or national-level government! In spite of limited County resources, they’re undertaking renovations that will provide visitors with a beautiful facility for many years to come. A fine example for the custodians of our Parks and Recreation Areas around the country.
Off tomorrow to visit the Ocmulgee Mounds. So stay tuned!
