Avast, ye mateys! It's the Tampa Bay Times' weekly caption contest

Caption contest #54: Send us a clever caption for this image.

We're a month late for International Talk Like a Pirate Day, but this week's photo was just too good to pass up.

Send your clever caption for this image to by Tuesday, October 25, at 8:30 a.m. You can send as many caption submissions as you like. Please include your name and where you live along with your captions. And remember: Just be nice (and funny).

We'll select the best caption (and first runner-up) and publish it next Wednesday. We'll also post the winner to our Instagram account - @tampabaytimes.

To get your creative juices flowing, here's a sample caption for this week's photo:

And the winner for Caption Contest #53 is . . .

Winning caption: Submitted by Ken Taylor – @beachsnooker – Ft. Myers, FL.

And coming in at #2 is . . .

First runner-up #1: Submitted by Bernie Gay, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Nicely done, Ken and Bernie!

And, as always, thanks to this week's esteemed panel of caption contest judges (Caryn Baird, Carolyn Edds, Jeremy King, John Martin and Tim Rozgonyi), who spent countless minutes choosing the best caption from amongst all the submissions.
