BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

Many people were out enjoying Labor day after Hurricane Hermine brought rains and heavy wind to south Georgia last week.

The Bainbridge boat basin reopened Saturday just in time for boats to get out on the water.

The boat basin is always a popular spot on holidays.

The Frysz family, like many wanted to spend their day off on the water.

"We're going to enjoy our time out on the river. Plan on going to a sandbar and get some sun and have a little fun," said Joesph Frysz.

After the long weekend started with heavy rains and strong winds from Hurricane Hermine, the Frysz family left Thomasville and headed over to Bainbridge to finally see some sunshine.

"We had a tree fall on our house, we cut down three trees. Today is an opportunity for us to have some fun after thank God nothing was damaged," said Frysz.

A beautiful day that didn't attract as many people to the water as it normally does.

"We were actually really surprised because normally on labor day and on a long weekend, especially with us not having school Friday the four day weekend normally there is a lot of people," said Jackson Buchanan.

Buchanan said this could be because many people are still cleaning up damage from Hermine.

"I know most of the people that we went hunting with Saturday said that they were going down to Florida today to help their family and friends that were stuck in Tallahassee."

Many people were started to come into the boat basin later on it the day.

"We expect it to be pretty packed so hopefully there will be a spot for us on that sandbar, if not we will just anchor out and swim to it." said Frysz.
