Ken Davis of Estero, Florida, breezin’ along with the breeze. By Paul Goldfinger.     2013 Re-post.

We met Ken Davis at the Causeway Islands Park which stretches from Ft. Myers to Sanibel Island.  It is a remarkable  park where you can just pull over and drive onto the beach.    We saw Ken pull his 4-wheel drive up to edge of the Gulf of Mexico. His car was filled with wind-sailing gear.

It took him quite a while to put his wind-sail together. It was a breezy afternoon, but he shook his head and said that there wasn’t enough wind to get a really good result.  Nevertheless, he got on board and aimed for Cuba.  But a short while later he returned toward shore and then headed out again.  That’s when I got this shot.

Ken is a “local” and he was there with some friends who huddled on shore to keep warm. Soon it would be sunset, but we were gone after getting this photo. Ken was still cruisin’ around when we departed.  Sunsets are corny, but you already know that.   —Paul Goldfinger
