30 Lakes in 30 Days - Day Five

Lake Sharing. . . 

Day Five in our facebook series of lake sharing.
Today we circle around to Texas and take a look see at Lake Nacagdoches 
as shared by Kay Nichols Rodgers.

Kay writes:  Perfect ending to the day @Lake Nacagdoches.  And by the looks of this photo who could argue?

Located on Loco Bayou, 10 miles west of Nacogdoches, Texas (some say is the oldest city in Texas) this 2,200 acre lake offers a great place to catch largemouth bass, crappie and sunfish.  And the area offers many amenities for those looking for a charming weekend get-away.

Nacagdoches hosts the Annual Blueberry Festival on the second
Saturday in June; the festival in 2014 will mark the 25th year of this event.

Random Tidbit:  Don Henley was raised in the area and attended Stephen F Austin State University a couple of years prior to moving to California where he became a member of Linda Ronstadt's backup band before eventually forming The Eagles.

Who knew?
