Excitement on the Beach
Today we had some excitement on the beach. We heard a helicopter outside the windows. We looked out and we saw the helicopter skimming low just above the water. We figured someone was in trouble in the water. Then we saw a man drop out of the helicopter, so we thought he was rescuing someone. We saw a boat in the area where the man was swimming, so we still thought it was a man overboard. Eventually, we realized that it was a practice session for the military. The helicopter has dropped 3 sets of people into the water and they have had to swim to shore. The boat is there to rescue anyone of the people who might have trouble getting to shore. It was kind of fun to watch. We really do have a front row seat to the going-ons of the area.
