The Rescue

6 x 9 Oil on Archival Board

On Labor Day, we were out on our boat with friends enjoying the day when suddenly an alarm went off and our motor died.  As we sat bobbing around we discussed what we would do.  It was late in the day, and there weren't many people on the lake at that time.  We were about to call Sea Tow, when a really nice man came by on his jet ski with his beautiful dog on the back.  He asked if we needed help and towed us all the way back to our dock.  His dog didn't seem the least bit concerned, even though it was hot and there wasn't much of a breeze.  What amazes me the most is what wonderful people live here at Smith Mountain Lake.  Actually, all over.  With all we hear about the horrible people in this world and the horror they cause, it is nice to remember that the majority of people are good and kind, and just trying to live a decent life.
