As the sun sets on the summer boating season, I thought I would share this photo submitted by regular contributor Ed O’Connor of his dock at sunset on Saturday.  Ed is fortunate to still have his boat in the water at this point due to low end-of-season water levels (note his dock placement). Thanks for sharing Ed and I hope you get some more days in…
