Summer-time fun in the springs

Although summer doesn’t officially start until Saturday, that didn’t stop this duo from getting in the water and playing. Covington residents Michael Layson, 10, and his 4-year-old sister Mary play in the water at Academy Springs Tuesday afternoon. Although these two found only worms, their grandfather, Warren Christian, said when he was a youngster he used to find crawfish and lizards in the springs. Michael said the water was a little cold, but he quickly got used to it. (Staff Photo: Julie Wells)
