OMG, your survivor's sixth sense has saved Girl M. Can't imagine it was her that got swept away under your watch. Truly sad for the other 12 yo...WHERE were the people watching her???

Hampton Beachis very crowded. I also find that no matter what the population on any given day, no one looks out for others in the water. I'm bringing my binoculars and a whhistle from now on. Kids die on that beach every single freaking year and they are surrounded by about a million other beach-goers when they do.

This is also the same town as where Camden Hughes Pierce was murdered earlier in May.

Also, I don't think I saved girl M at all. I was just very much on guard from as result of my "feelings."

Howdy, Robbie.

Having grown up in Boston way back then 39-54, i was at that beach one time. That girl that you had mentioned her brother (who tried to save her) was on the Today show. Real sad.

Me and my boyhood friends used to swim in the East Boston side of the harbor. How I/we ever survived swimming in that polluted water is known only by God.

The only salt water that my son ever swam in was off of Okinawa. My daughter-in-law & 2 grandsons went swimming in the Gulf, off of Corpus Christi, TX last summer. Other than that they swim in lifeguard swimming pools with their parents.

Sure glad that you got to enjoy your children, I am happy for you.

Take care, my fraternal brother, Robbie, heal well.

"I will take that lost boys hand, and I will lead him from the depths of darkness, into the sunshine,forever into eternity." As he is me.

Pete,

My father grew up on the water in E. Boston and my mother in Winthrop, also on the water. You may have run into them.

Hi, my brothers,

I forgot to add that we always were naked when we swam in the harbor. Maybe our paths have crossed way back then.

It was part of an abandoned wharf. But there was an elderly lady in the projects who used to watch us naked boys on the wharf. Sometimes we had seen her and we faced her and umm ahh ohh shaked our umm ahh penises at her.

Maybe that's just way too much of information overload. Just a fond memory for me.

Heal well, my brothers, heal well.

"I will take that lost boys ahnd, and I will lead him from the depths of darkness, into the sunshine, forever into eternity." As he is me.

Considering my father started building boats at about age 10 and my mother would bring her daily catch of perry-winkles to the movies with her, I'd say my role with the ocean was pretty well etched. All paternal grandfathers as far as we can see were Atlantic sailors from boyhood-on.

Its very strange. I fear the ocean but am compelled to sail against her. One mariner once said that "true sailors learn to hate and/or fear the sea, or they don't have that much experience with it."
