Since the coronavirus pandemic has forced social distancing many Orange County residents have been doing more projects around the house and spending more time in their gardens. They have also been spending more time outdoors, on the whole, getting more exercise and enjoying the fresh air, especially during one of the most beautiful springs our area has seen in years. Cow Bayou in Bridge City is a great example. It offers residents the opportunity to get out on the water and enjoys the scenic natural beauty of the bayou this time of year while still maintaining social distancing. Many locals have turned to boating for bonding with family, spending quality time with a loved one, or just enjoying the solitude away from crowds.

Incidentally, National Safe Boating Week is May 16-22 with the goal of educating the public about the importance of safe boating practices.
