Rescue for the damsel in distress

Yesterday I showed my wife on the other side of the Langosta estuary, unwilling to swim or wade back across. This is a wide angle shot that makes the estuary appear wider than it is.

Yesterday Brattcat left a comment guessing that Julie used her initiative to find another way back. She based that guess on Julie being an independent and resourceful person, as Julie has demonstrated herself to be through her posts from slot canyons and other places on her Scottsdale Daily Photo site.

Susie of Arabia guessed that Julie was rescued. Susie was right. As my son would say, Julie "played the blonde card."

Julie obtained a ride across the estuary in a kayak. I realize that even if you click on this photo to enlarge it, the kayak rescue is barely visible. I wanted to show the overall scene first, and tomorrow will show a closer view taken through a telephoto, and explain how she found a kayak in which to ride.

Today is Sunday, so we have new photos on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we are showing pictures of Spain. We hope you find them of interest.

The funny thing is, before I read your complete comments, I enlarged the photo because I couldn't believe that was Julie still standing out there. Then I saw they guy with the boat and it made me laugh. Very resourceful indeed!
