In late 2008, a couple from South Africa crossed the Atlantic aboard the beautiful Queen Mary 2 alongside the Queen Elizabeth 2nd’s maiden voyage. While taking pictures of the QE2’s historic crossing, their camera slipped and disappeared into the deep blue sea.
In January of this year, fifteen months after the camera was lost, a fisherman trawling the ocean floor found the camera in his fishing net. The camera was inoperable but the memory card and photos were intact.
The fisherman viewed the photos, which included a picture of a woman standing on the deck of a ship with the QE2 at sea in the background. The fisherman contacted the BBC, where a correspondent determined that the passengers had been aboard the Queen Mary 2.
Cunard Cruise Lines was notified and they were able to identify and locate the couple, and reunite them with their photos,which were plucked from the bottom of the sea.
I read this story and thought….wow…that is so cool!
Needed to post something positive….before I go on “spring break”….so if I don’t post anything for a few days….well, I’m trying to either, relax, discover, experience, vegitate, forget, pretend, gamble, laugh, relax again, hurry because i’m late for something, hike, observe, enjoy, and finally relax again before going back to reality and work.
