Rob .. that photograph is special....it has this old feel to it (except the green sign) and if the words were removed from the small boat, it could be a scene from 150 years ago. I love it.

Congrats too, to Kurt and Pat! Nice stuff all.

A well deserved win Rob !  And congratulations to the runners up--I'm glad I'm not the one having to make these choices every month, not an easy job with all the great entries.
