Growing up in the Lehigh Valley area of Pa., the men in our family spent an awful lot of time on the Delaware river be it fishing on weekends or night fishing during the week, we were there!
During the summers we would go down to Washington’s Crossing and soak in the beauty. Or drive up past Delaware Water gap to pick wild huckleberry’s in the woods.
The Delaware has always been our go to place, and I repeated that over and over again with my own kids as they were growing up. I tried to instill in them the simpler of times the river can provide us. I suppose my own heritage being mixed blood Delaware played a role in my choice to be so close to the river for my kids as well.
I would encourage anyone to spend time along the river to enrich your own family as well.
