A Picnic on Lake Lanier

There is nothing better than a picnic alongside a lake!! Have you ever had a picnic by the water's edge? It is fun, isn't it?

This was our view from the car as we drove toward the dam at Lake Lanier.

When we got to the East Bank Park Leslie heads off exploring while I set out our food.

Our view of the lake. Lots of trees blocked the scene but they did give us plenty of shade.

If I keep trying I might master that timer on my camera!! This shot turned out pretty well if I do say so myself.

We had a yummy meal in this nice, clean picnic area. We pretty much had the place to ourselves. Not even a bird or animal came to investigate.

Another shot taken from the road. Lake Lanier is really large and very pretty.
We stopped at another park on the west side of the dam. This display tells all about Lake Lanier.
Now, don't ask me what this is. In fact, I was going to ask you if you knew!! It was propped up at the end of the large billboard display above.

We found a couple of swings down near the water and sat swinging awhile. I guess we would have been there yet but those narrow plank seats were UNCOMFORTABLE!!

Another day in Georgia.... another adventure marked off our bucket list. And, there is still more to come. Stay tuned.


  1. what a great visit! enjoyed the pictures. such a peaceful day. we used to live about an hour from lake lanier, in walton county!

  2. What a beautiful day and a handsome couple! I would say you're very good with your camera timer. That's a great picture!

  3. We also are within just a few miles of Lake Lanier in an adjacent county. Growing up, my parents best friends had a cabin on Lake Lanier and we had such fun summer visits there. I'm happy that you two enjoyed your visit and that the area was clean and peaceful. Beautiful photos of you both.

  4. I love to go on picnics and don't do it like we used to. It looks like the perfect day for a picnic! Your photo through the trees of the lake is especially pretty. I am so glad you and Leslie are having such good adventures together!


  5. Looks like such a great time! Lovely couple. This is the type of place I would enjoy a walk and picnic lunch. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful photos.

  6. OH, what a beautiful place and couple! Next time I visit mom in Macon, we'll have to go on a day trip to picnic at Lake Lanier!
