Hi Suzi, these coast Guard men are heroes.I know that because I was in a small sailing boat(5 meters) in the English Channel on the way to Cherbourg France 36 hours later, we were close to Alderney.The storm and the current just sweept us away.We had a guardian angel doing overtime.With best greetings, Stephan

Thank you, dearest GW - it was good of Jim to invite me. One of our local U.S. Coast Guard Chief Petty Officers is using this image as the header on his website - very thrilling for this mermaid. The leaves are beginning to fall here, it's been foggy for a month as it has been very warm inland. Hope all is great with you, dear friend. Happy hugs and best fishes from your LTM (O:
