It's a great pleasure to welcome Susan back with her travel highlight entry.
La Tortuga Island, Venezuela 1998
We joined divers near an uninhabited island off the coast of Venezuela for a week of exploring. One evening the captain invited us to join his family for a spin around a mangrove swamp nearby. Honored, we climbed aboard his small motor boat.
A calm sea beckoned us into lush inlets.
Halfway around, the engine sputtered and stopped.
“Dirty gas” the captain said.
No toolbox on board. No oars. No life jackets.
Crazy, especially with a baby aboard.
We drifted and waited.
We watched, listened, and shouted for joy when fishermen came to our rescue.
