On Monday September 29, 2015 while I was out at Golden Gate Park taking a break from all the drama, I heard helicopters. The helicopters were very low, so I went to investigate. So I got in my car and followed the helicopters,(yes that is possible) and they led me to Ocean Beach in San Francisco. Where I then noticed a sailboat had been beached or grounded in the surf. I then scanned Twitter, and the information I collected on that social media site said “Two people were rescued.”
I then walked down to the boat and began taking photos. Another person walked up to me, and said they had a backstory. They had noticed the boat acting weird off the beach earlier in the day, so I then dismissed the scene as thieves whole stole a boat and went on a joyride.
My initial reaction on FB here,
“2 people had to be rescued after their sailboat drifted onto the beach, at Ocean Beach in San Francisco.”
“If you ask me that boat doesn’t look sea worthy.”
“Authorities are suspicious.”
“A sail boat named the Sea Beach ran aground at Ocean Beach in San Francisco on September 28 at approximately 2:30p.m. “Two people were allegedly rescued from the vessel.”
“SFGATE, published one of my photos of the stranded vessel.”
and finally this post.
“Apparently the grounded sailboat stoked up a lot of interest on social media. I underestimated the importance or interesting-ness of that “beached sailboat?” Next time I will handle those scenes differently. I myself dismissed it as nothing more than thieves out for a joy ride on a stolen vessel. That’s why I wrote down “allegedly” on my posts. Thieves who wreck boats don’t get rescued, they get arrested.
I took one look at that boat, and my initial reaction was “stolen.”
