With 29.2% of the votes cast, 7 votes out of 24, the grand winner of the first caption contest is . . . Buck . . . whose caption was “The GPS said this was the fastest route!”  Great job, Buck, and thanks to all for submitting captions and to all of you for voting on them.

As fortune would have it, Capt. Allen Baker sent in a foto that lends itself to the second caption contest.  See below.  If the spirit moves you to send in a possible caption, please do.  I’ll put some up in a few days for a vote-off.

Click here for another  foto showing Colonna Shipyard posted last year.

So please, send in your caption either as comment or email, named or anonymous.

Thanks to Allen for this foto and to Buck for proposing the winning caption for our first contest.

By the way, I’m on Day 6 of my workshop on the Brooklyn waterfront, learning a lot, and having a blast.  Today it’s Coney Island.  Report later.  What’s happening today is unrelated to the parade  fun eight days from now.

Here’s a sneak preview of my work-in-progress.
