Lost at Sea.

Hello everyone! It’s Wednesday again and another eek of my Opinion Wednesdays. We are also halfway through the week again, thank Goodness! I can do with some more sleep ūüėõ

Anyway, I wanted to  ask how many of you have heard of the man who was lost at seas for 14 months? I came across a news article some weeks back that talked about a man called José Salvador Alvarenga, who disappeared off the coast of Mexico after going to fish with one other companion, on his small fishing boat.

Being Too Young vs. Being Experienced

Hello all you wonderful people! This week is Carnival week on Saba! Although it started since last week Saturday the official opening was on Monday. I’m enjoying myself and having fun over here. Are you have quite the awesome time yourself wherever you may be?

The reports also suggest that they were heading for Bahamas without their parents consent. So they felt comfortable and confident enough to go fishing on their own without parent supervision. And apparently their parents thought the same as well considering that they defended themselves from critics saying that they were knowledgeable and had enough experienced about the sea/ ocean to be able to be in the water. Well, I guess the two boys were not as knowledgeable and experienced about the sea/ ocean as the parents and others initially thought.
