There’s really nothing pretty about this abandoned boat we saw in the Outer Banks last weekend.

It’s dirty, and it’s anchored in dirty water.

Obviously, it’s had no attention for a long time: no sailing trips, no maintenance, not even a simple cleaning. And it appears to have, literally, “hit bottom”.

What circumstances caused the owner to abandon his boat: financial difficulties? Poor health? Death? Whatever the reason for its neglect, it’s sad to see it in such sad condition.

But this neglected old boat makes for an interesting, if not pretty, picture in the magic that is morning’s golden hour.
