Everybody, listen to me, and return me, my ship
I’m your captain, I’m your captain…
I have taken some liberties with the topic of this week’s Photo Challenge “Inside.” As you can see, this photo shows “NOT Inside,” instead.
While I’m being a bit playful with words here, what happened that day on the lake could have been tragic. The captain bounced out of his boat without having his kill-switch tether attached, and so his boat circled endlessly until the fire department ran the boat aground.
Fortunately, no one was injured in this incident, but not all similar incidents have had happy endings.
