When I was writing about the wonderful weekend we spent in St. Augustine, I mentioned that we talked to three men who had traveled by boat down from Savannah. It sounded to us like they were helping the Coast Guard search for a boat that had gone missing.
It turns out, that’s exactly what has been happening. Two firefighters left Canaveral on Friday to fish along a reef and never returned home. The Coast Guard and an armada of volunteers have been out searching for them for four days now. The guys in St Augustine are part of the 180 people, 70 boats, and 10 aircraft they have combing the Florida coastline for signs of the firemen.
If you are of the praying persuasion, say a prayer for the firemen and all the people out there risking their lives to save them. We saw some violent storms in the area Friday night.
