The sun was shining, the breeze was blowing… it was the perfect day to unofficially wrap up the summer season.
While many of us were firing up the grills today, others took advantage of the calm waters of Irondequoit Bay to end the summer on the right note.
News10NBC was at the Bay this afternoon speaking to boaters and enjoying a little bit of the gorgeous weather.
The weather was great on Sunday. More than 100 boats launched from Irondequoit Bay and the same amounts of people are expected tomorrow. The Labor Day weekend does mark the unofficial end of summer, but it also marks the beginning of a new school year.
Nicole Schneller says, “Every weekend, every chance we get, we’re out on this water.”
That’s what Nicole Schneller’s summer has been like. Her and her family just can’t get enough.
She continues, “This is the way we spend all of our free time. Whenever we get a free moment, we’re out here or Sodus.”
But now all the fun in the sun is coming to an end, as summer unofficially wraps up this holiday weekend.
Sunday was also a good time to look back on a fun season. A time to kick back, relax and sail away one last time.
Nicole Schneller says, “Great summer, I mean weather wise you can’t get any better than this. We’ve definitely been spoiled.”
For many, summer went away too fast. Now it’s time to re-open those books.
Nick Schneller had a little trouble saying goodbye to the season, but admits he can’t really complain.
He says, “I wish school didn’t exist right now, but we all have to go.”
He continues, “I've been doing a lot of boating, a lot of hanging out so it's been a nice summer.”
And with the sun shining and the amazing view, it couldn’t have been a more perfect day to end a perfect season.
Nick Schneller says, “I am bummed that it’s over. It’s been a great summer like I said, so we’re sad to see it go.”
A lot of boaters did tell News10NBC they were cautious today because of the amount of boats on water.
News10NBC spoke to the coast guard today and they say were very cautious today because of the number of boats on water.
However, the coast guard reports no major incidents, which is good news this holiday weekend especially after last week’s tragedy.
