Memorial Day weekend is usually the unofficial start of the summer when everyone likes to get out of doors and camp, hike, fish, and fire up the grills. The weather cooperated this year and we had a pretty busy weekend. On Monday, I found myself stationed at the Lackawaxen access but it was not so busy because it was a day that people had to pack up and get back home.
But I got a couple of pictures that express the day in the river. The first one is a local kayaker with a service dog that can alert him when he is about to have an epileptic event. They were swimming and enjoying the calmness of the water for quite some time. The second one should be a poster to show how even in calm sections of the river, everyone should have their life jackets on. I loved how this family was safely relaxing and floating down the river.
