Now in Louisiana, glamping by the Toledo Bend Reservoir

We left the Galveston Bay State Park around 8:25 AM and would be crossing into Louisiana at 12:44 PM.

Today's sunrise:

Seeking to avoid the overcrowded traffic conditions of Interstate 45, we took CCjon's advice and boarded the Bolivar-Galveston Ferry to get onto the Bolivar Peninsula.  From there, we headed northwards towards the border with Louisiana and the reservoir where we had reservations.

There was not much waiting to get on the ferry and debarking was done easily and smoothly.

We're staying at the Fort Johnson Toledo Bend US Army Recreation Area's campground.  Full hookups so we're glamping!

We walked the small area's offerings easily, it's pretty small compared to other recreation areas we've visited.

Yagi got a little exercise, so I can claim LA
in the list of states ridden in...

Martha found a new toy at the swim beach
