Day of Sorrow

Boot Key Harbor, Marathon, FL
34 42.54 N 081 05.58 W

Very sad news on the radio this morning.

First, Scott Adam, Jean Adam, Phyllis Macay and Bob Riggle were killed by Somali pirates today. They were fellow cruisers and commodores of the SSCA organization that we belong to. We didn't know any of them personally. Nevertheless, our hearts go out to these intrepid people and to their families.

Second was the news of earthquake devastation in Christchurch, NZ. Our dear friend Mary Ann is from Christchurch. We called her this morning. So far, none of her friends or relatives are known to be among the injured or dead. Thank goodness for that. Again, our hearts go out to those who are suffering today.
