Gone Fishing


There is a saying...
A bad day spent fishing is a better day 
than a good day spent at work.  

Many times that saying is true. 
But not always...

If you look carefully,
you'll see evidence of someone who would rather have been at work.

With rescue helicopters over head...

and rescue boats in the inlet...

my  suspicions were confirmed.

Do you see it now?
Just below that channel marker in the above photo
is the top of a 38 foot fishing boat.

Other than the loss of the boat and gear,
all six people on board were safely rescued.
The accident happened after a heavy morning fog fell over the area.
The boat, named Southern Comfort, ran into the jetty that runs along the Barnegat Inlet in NJ.
I'm thinking someone was feeling pretty blue that day.
I hope he has good insurance.

  7. Wonderful pictures, Rebecca. Even though the boat wreck ones were sad.

    I think the guy in the top picture had the best time that day.

  10. Great shots but what an awful feeling that must have been.

  11. my uncle, a teacher went fishing everyday. My aunty complained everyday.
    The fish he caught are minnows, she would rather throw away.
    Why did uncle fish? to get away from Aunty.

  12. That was an expensive outing! Yes, I bet the owner would have been much happier at work.
