In a wonderful boat ride Sunday I saw several floating dock that were hanging by a rope or chain in mid-air.  As the lake continues to drop these docks (or the supporting dock) are going to be damaged.

Good advice.  I had already relieved a tight chain on mine.  Come on down, I've got work to do on the beach. 

On another note, I am glad a few enjoyed the extra days of high water.  In the end, my opinion is that is did not result in a great amount of increase late activity.  Not sure how well it helped Kowalgia Restaurant, but I know The Landing and Harbor Docks closed up about same time, or even earlier than last year.

I can't really blame Herb for closing immediately after Labor Day, as I am sure his staff was probably exhausted.  That being said, it would have been nice to be able to take advantage of the extra water and great weather to go to the Landing another time or two.  Maybe next year ??

Read that it will probably take a number of years before lake owners change their habits and plan to enjoy the lake.  Maybe a generation.

Don't have to change my habits to enjoy the Fall/Winter version of the lake.  I like the beach, and young grand kids love it!  Four wheeler rides, fishing from the beach, trucks and tractors in the sand, bondfires, etc.   Also, the absolute beauty of the bright setting sun spotlighthing the fall colors of the trees.

Saturday morning my wife and I sat in our hammock chairs and watched the Bald Eagle catch his breakfast and retreat to a tall pine to enjoy. After a bit he was circling again for the second course.

Love Lake Martin in the Fall

That happened to us a couple of years, before we had it fixed.  No damage to our floating dock.  

Love Lake Martin in the Fall.  I love it when the colored leaves are still on the trees, but I can see into the woods.  Spotting the dark deer, seeing a wild turkey or two.  The weather is just about perfect for me.  And thanks to time falling back, my dogs don't want to go out quite so early.  Life is good.

We'll eventually see a little more traffic in the fall, but it will take changing the start dates of school and football season for us to see a huge increase. And I don't see either of those changing; if anything, they'll both start even sooner, not later.
