Yesterday, after our adventure with the grumpy 11 year old, and after our encounter with the crabby counter person, we went to the lake to hang out for a while. We went to Barcelona beach because it was close and because it is where you can find lots and lots of beach glass.
William was washing away his whines in the waves while I looked for flat and rounded stones to do a craft with Iris when next I go. Tim was sitting on the beach staring out at the horizon. It was very sunny and the light was glistening off the water.
"Look at that," Tim said, pointing far out in the water. I looked. "See that light? I wonder what that is. It's awfully bright, to be able to see it clear back here."
I watched. "That is strange. It seems a lot brighter that the sunlight reflecting off the water."
We watched it for some time.
When we left the beach, we heard that someone had fallen off a fishing boat in the water off Barcelona Beach and never resurfaced.
Were they not found?ReplyDelete
Not as of this morning. According to the report, they fell off the boat and went under, never coming back to the surface. It was a charter boat, and there were 4 paying passengers on board.Delete
That's sad, Debby.ReplyDelete
I had never heard that song before and the lyrics sure made me think. Thanks for sharing it.
Tim said that he heard that it was the captain of the charter boat. Someone had hooked a fish, and he jumped in to bring the fish aboard, He went under and never came back up. There were 4 passengers on the boat who had no idea how drive the boat. They were stranded there until help came. That is unverified, I haven't seen that.Delete
(Kay of Musings) Oh my gosh! That is awful! If he jumped over to try to help get the fish, he must have been able to swim. That is really weird.ReplyDelete
Certainly is weird.ReplyDelete
Bright light from a search and rescue party?ReplyDelete
We're guessing that it was a light from the charter boat. It was the captain who went in the water, and he never came back up. Tim said, "You don't suppose that's an SOS, do you?" I'm guessing that it was. The four customers did not know how to operate the boat.Delete
That's not fun to think about. I wonder what sent him over.ReplyDelete
Tim heard that he jumped in to assist with a tangled fishing line. It's just so very odd that he was not found in that area. They've sent divers in for all the three days that he's been missing.Delete
