The Ghost Boat and the Coast Guard


IMG_8053Perhaps I am watching too many mysteries but the abandoned boat washed up on the rocks of  Sawgrass Beach today was somewhat creepy. It looked as if it had been drifting for some time, and as I approached closer I was tempted to board the shabby ship and see what was in the cabin. I realized that the boat was anchored but  I still wasn’t brave enough to enter.  My imagination did wander to the possibilities of the mystery boat, and as I was daydreaming, a Coast Guard plane flew directly above me.  Maybe they thought I was a Cuban making my way into America? Just how many Cubans did make their way to freedom on the rocky shores of this deserted beach?  How long did it take them? Cuba is closer to this island than Miami is.  IMG_8073
