Where Did I Put My Boat?

While walking around Siracusa, Sicily, my wife and I passed by an area with a number of locals swimming in the Mediterranean Sea; some were adults, some were children, and others were adults acting like children. As we were watching the people all splash around in the water, we noticed a small boat bumping up against the rocks behind us.

The boat wasn’t tied off to anything, nor was it occupied by anyone. Stranger still, no one seemed to care about the boat.

The water was shallow enough that we walked over and checked it out, and it looked to be sealed up.  We’re not sure if one of the people swimming just dumped it there while they frolicked in the water, or if it broke loose in the harbor and ended up where we saw it.

Whatever the case, the next day we returned with our suits to go swimming and the boat was gone.
