Here’s the real story behind the Sarnia beach-set mark piece from yesterday.

For the Paul Harvey fans out there, here’s the rest of the story.

The picture is about two years old.  I walk my dog Jenny from our home down to the end of the beach and back on occasion.  Particularly if there is a good blow; love the sound of the water.  Did the same walk a couple of days ago which made me track down the image.  I printed out a 12″ x 18″ print because I like it.  Had house to myself last night after a month of company.  Have never posted, wasn’t sure where to post but thought would make people smile.  So I posted.

I got a PM from SYC’s race director asking me if I could pinpoint the precise location of the marker because members had been down to pick it up and couldn’t locate it.  I found it strange that they had done without it for two years (remember, I prefaced saying I am not racer so ignorant of racing everything) and weird that someone had stolen it and never returned it.  That’s when the penny dropped for me.  Yesterday we had a blow out of the north that gusted to, perhaps, the high 30′s.  They thought it had happened again!

So I PM’d back asking “How much is it worth to you?”

But I couldn’t go through with it.  I knew the Race Director from when he kicked my ass playing squash.  I called him to let him know it was an old picture.

Glad people got a kick out of it.

So now you know the rest of the story.

A surprisingly pretty pic of the Sarnia (Ontario) Yacht Club’s infamous ‘X-mark’ in a somewhat unconventional location the other day.  Share your lower Lake Huron stories here, and thanks to n00b ‘communiqueter’ for the shot.
