Beached

Last evening we took a walk on the beach,
hazy and humid... noticed a crowd had
gathered up ahead and couldn't imagine why
until we noticed 2 boats sitting in the sand at the
edge of the ocean.
Still we had no idea who and why.

Asked someone and were told that a fog bank
had rolled in around 2 or 3 in the afternoon and
these 2 boats obviously couldn't see and ended
up on the beach and had to wait about 5 or 6 hours
for the tide to come in.


We happened to be there at the time of the rescue
for the more famous boat as you see here.



Help was on the way!
A tuna boat is in the middle...



Success!


The other boat managed to get out with the help
of passersby who pushed and pulled...

Never know what you'll see on these evening walks!
