While in Chicago they came up with this crazy idea to sail around the world, despite the fact that neither of them had ever been on a sailboat before

The mystery of The Teignmouth Electron: On 1 July 1969, after sailing 16,591 miles in 213 days, Donald Crowhurst scribbled his last deranged entry in the log of Teignmouth Electron, made his way to the stern and stepped into the sea

I had to write to you when I saw this waterdrop feet photo in yesterday's blog - I had just taken photos of my own 'accidental' water drops footprints on my counter a couple of days earlier that blew me away. That the waterdrops from washing dishes could fall in this pattern was mind numbing. So when I saw this shot, I got goose bumps all over ~ too weird a coincidence. My photo business name got started by "feet" (Footographer's Delight). There must be a great message here!
