It’s been years since I have been to this part of Lake Burton, which has a quiet sleepy cove. Back then a group of us would drive to the lake and talk about having dinner at LaPrades. Usually, we had little to no money and could not afford it. We learned today that the restaurant closed in the late ’80’s, but we discovered that the lake is as beautiful as ever.


A quick stop by a trout stream just to bait my appetite for brown trout, which is native to Georgia but rarely caught today. Most steams in northeast Georgia are stocked with Rainbow Trout—just as delicious.


A perfect sunset and a perfect ending to a perfect afternoon.
