More Refugee Boats on Hatteras Island

Earlier today I was running around Buxton taking photos of Storm Prep when I ran into Donna Williams.

She showed me photos of 2 more Refugee Boats that had washed up on the Beach in North Avon.

I was able to meet up with her husband Jarvis at his compound to snap a few photos of the boats.

I still can’t wrap my head around climbing into one of these to sail across open seas.

Definition of Bravery.

This really puts things into perspective. Our hard times are not the same as theirs. I hope that somewhere, somehow, the people who went to sea in these “boats” survived.
