This rugged, and handsome man worked on the boat we chartered to go snorkeling. By the end of the day, I was tired and having trouble getting off the beach to swim back to the boat. The waves were huge, and crashing one after another on top of me. He appeared out of no where, took my hand, and got me back to the boat safely. I didn’t tell him I grew up on the ocean, and never feared rough seas. It was a great ending to a wonderful day.

they are kisses
on the lips of silence
that speak of your essence

and your words

    Wow …sounds more like the beginning of a romantic movie!! He looks very handsome, quite serious and almost dramatic. So glad you are ok and he was there!! Be more careful young lady! lol But seriously, isn’t it strange sometimes how people appear out of nowhere …and save you????
    Goosebumps here. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxooxoxxo

  • It was a great moment. I really would have been okay, but the story is so much better with him in it!
    I’ve had a few times where someone showed up out of nowhere to help me, and these people will be forever ingrained in my memories. Thank you so much, Shar, for sharing this moment with me. xxxx

    His handsome, rugged, looks must have helped that happy ending. :) Love the beautiful boats and water faded into the background. Glad you made it back safe and sound, Tori.

  • He definitely helped the happy ending. Thanks for liking the background, too. I though this came out great. So glad to see you here, Frannie. Thanks for your input into my story.

    Wonderful portrait, Tori!! ….so glad he was there to help you! xx

  • I was taken aback for a second when he appeared from under the surf. I had seen him earlier on the boat, and was more than pleased when I realized he was there to help me. I grew up on the ocean, and was a bit embarrassed, but I had all this snorkeling gear weighing me down. Thanks so much for stopping in, Kim!

    Good looking guy coming to the rescue of a damsel in distress-but seriously Torri you need to be more careful you are no match against the strong waves……

  • Going from the boat to the shore was no problem.The rough surf threw me off heading back, especially with flippers on. I grew up on the ocean,and have spent many hours in the water, but we never snorkeled here in New York. I would have eventually gotten in, but I was more than pleased when I realized I was getting help. Thanks so much for your great comment, Renate!
