Last summer, I was down by the river. On a stretch of grass, adjacent to the canal and canal lock, a young, beautiful woman lounged on the lawn. Her colorful belongings were strewn about her. Just below, her friends were swimming in the whirlpool created as the water tumbled into the lock. The joyful echoes of their voices pierced the peaceful atmosphere.
In the distance, a mother with child, hand in hand were about to make their descent towards the river. Behind the mill, the canal water falls into the river. First creating a shallow tidal pool before it streams into the Delaware River. This attracts many people looking for a safe place to cool off in the summer heat.
