ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Many folks spent labor day close to home, enjoying some R and R and taking advantage of the natural beauty.

Dozens of boats were cruising along Lake Blackshear where folks were taking part in all sorts of fun from skiing to fishing.

Locals who spent time on the lake say this year it seemed a bit more quiet than previous years.

"I don't know maybe with the weather, the economy, hunting season gets back in next weekend so some people may have been in the woods getting ready," said Chase Crawford, Lee County resident.

Some folks we talked with today said they also spent their labor day holiday dove hunting in the woods.

The season officially opened Saturday at noon.
