8: Island of the Week: In the spirit of Halloween! Graveyard Island!

Graveyard Island measures 30 by 30 yards and is almost a circle. Surrounded by a seawall of rip-rap, a small county graveyard of long ago is now a tiny island in Lake Martin and can be seen from the lake homes in the Bay Pines area. The fading memorials are protected and still legible after more than a century of existence. It’s best to approach it from downwind and tie the boat with a long line so it doesn’t have contact with the seawall. The best place to approach the island is from the east, where a shallow, sandy bottom makes it easy to jump out into the water and approach the island.Latitude 32.84810 Longitude -85.86254

3: YOU have to do this!!!!

The leaves and colors may have never been as incredible as they are this year! If you want to find some ‘REAL PEACE’…take your best friend, a blanket, a bottle of your best wine, (or scotch), make sure the sun is still high enough to brightly hit the leaves and trees, and cruise the shoreline of our wonderful Lake…then wait for one of the miraculous sunsets we see every fall evening on our Lake! It’s truly an evening to remember!

2: To Winterize or NOT!

That is the question! Since I’m on the boat 52 weeks out of the year, I have never winterized, however there are many reasons to winterize and when to winterize…CLICK HERE for more answers winterizing your boat!

1: THANK YOU! This week marks a decade of ‘producing some form’ of this Lake Martin Top 10.

I often hear people talk about a ‘Labor of Love’. I now know what they mean!  We have thousands of ‘Lake Lovers’ that receive this Top 10 every Thursday, and we are blessed that over 50% of you take the time to open it, read it, and give us helpful feed back! The National Average for emails like THIS Top 10 being opened and read is less than 13%. We are blessed to have so many ‘Lake Martin Enthusiasts and Friends’ to read this every week, keeping our average well above 50%!

Today begins the Second Decade of The Top 10!

Very informative, accurate, and helps to be aware of events around the lake that can effect everyday affairs or enhance the lake life. I appreciate the labor to find out the facts. I look forward to the Thursday newsletter. Thanks for being an important herald of Lake Martin.

P.S. Thank you for changing the background to white much easier read.
