Photo of the Week

Sunset during a trip in the Gulf ICW. "We were bringing a boat home (to Kemah, TX)," writes Mike Joplin in an email. "I had just purchased in Sarasota, FL. The photo was taken just outside of Morgan City, LA." Joplin adds, "FYI, we were working with the Waterway Guide on that trip and found it invaluable! Prior to this, the longest trip I’d taken on our first boat was about 100 miles. We got the 411 Meridian in Sarasota, made the Gulf crossing and came home via the Gulf ICW." Photo by Gary Cryer.
