AMAZING- TEEN MISSING AND FOUND AGAIN.

Think back, remember I posted about this girl, Abby and her yacht, Wild Eyes on the 9th of May when she was in Cape Town harbor, while on her way to sail around the world solo.



Well, the bad news is, since she left Cape Town she went missing at sea during a storm, and her parents had lost all contact with her. Actually she'd lost all contact with the world for a while.

The good news is however, she has been found in the Southern Indian ocean. She is just fine, but her yacht is, even though in one piece, badly damaged as a result of the storm. Seeing that I "stole" this info from another site, I am going to let you read the detail on the site I stole it from here!

I think her parents had suddenly grown 20 years older, and there, I am sure, is no way they will let her go on such a dangerous venture again.

Have a super day everyone.

I couldn't understand how her parents let her go in the first place. I wouldn't be able to sleep or eat the entire time she was gone. Maybe I'd let her go if I sailed a half mile behind her the whole way????

It's such a brave thing to do. But maybe sometimes I find these things a bit selfish also... Maybe wrong to say it but can't help think about how the family must have felt. What if she had never been found. I am happy everything went well.

Yay that is good news! But if I were her parents, I'd prolly join her next time. Or keep her locked up in the attic - Just kidding!

I read the article on yahoo the first time she was featured in there. The second feature or shall I news was when she was missing at sea. I am glad she is fine and reunited with her loved ones.

What an adventure! For sure she will not forget it all her life. Yet, I know she is happy. She stirred the whole wide world in awe and admiration. :)

Happy Fathers’ Day!
