Just a coincidence?

So I mentioned yesterday that I got the pinecones in my autumn display at the Life saving station in Delaware-the Indian River LS station-see the photo below. Didn't a bunch of guys out on a fishing trip get rescued near this same place! The guys were out over the weekend, about 70 miles out. Something hit the bottom of their chartered boat (a good size one-maybe 50 ft) and the water starting pouring in. The seven of them got in a raft designed for 4, with a few jugs of water and watched the boat sink within a few minutes. So all is good, they were rescued yesterday by the coast guard (yeah coast guard!!!) after living through a storm with 15 foot swells. I always get warm fuzzies when they show people unite with their families who have been worried to death about them. But I thought it was interesting, of all the places, it had to be right there at the Indian River inlet.

    Wow, those men sure were lucky to have been rescued all alive! Can't even imagine what they must have gone through, all crammed in that 4 man raft!
