Deus te Guie (God guides you) 9

Posted by
Michael Skorulski (Toronto, Canada) on 21 August 2015 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

A fishing boat called Deus Te Guie broke its anchor rope during a stormy night and washed ashore in front of my house in Brazil. Muscles straining, fishermen, friends and a tractor tug and push the boat up onto the beach to carry out repairs. In a very real sense, God has guided the owner and his boat to this beach where so many friends are willing to help him in his time of need. This is number 9 and the final photo in the series.

Here is a link to a short video I made of me sailing in Brazil:
