The "Second Wind" Story
May 05, 2017
Thank you to everyone who entered our Facebook caption contest last month! We enjoyed reading your captions. Thank you also to everyone who cast a vote for their favorite entry. Our caption contest photo came to us courtesy of photographer Sara Huck. So many people (including us!) wondered about the story behind the photo of this beached sailboat. Sara told us all about how this photo came to be. "I came across this beautiful beached boat when I was out boating with some friends near Naples, Florida. Second Wind was found on a small island close to Keewaydin Island. We were shelling and saw it at the tip of the island, we were all shocked. Being a sailor myself I couldn't help wonder how they could have beached it so badly, but it must have been a storm and they ran aground, and then they probably caught low tide. High tide would push it up higher and higher up the beach, and I haven't heard if it ever got rescued. Luckily there wasn't really any cosmetic damage to the hull, so as long as they could pull it off it should be ok! "As far as being a photographer, I do it for pleasure, I chase sunsets, they remind me of my mom. I thank her for painting a beautiful one every time I see one. Other than that I love landscapes, skies and nature, and of course occasional fun with friends! A lot of people tell me I should become a photographer, but for now its just a love of mine." We think Sara is already a wonderful photographer, and we thank her for giving us permission to feature her photo in our contest. See more of Sara's photos on Instagram: @ermalifesabeach.
