Caption Contest(!)

It’s that time again! We’re sharing this month’s Caption Contest(!) a little earlier than usual, as February is a short month! It’s only two or three days, but in our world, that could make the difference between getting the March issue to the docks on time, or having it arrive “un”-fashionably late — and we don’t want that!

So here it is, our February photo. While it could be a recent occurrence, given January’s wild weather, no boats known to us were harmed in the taking of this photo. The image has been making the rounds on the internet for more than 10 years. (If you are the original photographer, thank you; all credit goes to you.)
