The Bounty, seen off the Eastern Shore of Virginia on June 6 of this year from the deck of the Picton Castle. I had forgotten we had seen her until I was looking through my photographs the other day.
The Bounty, this past Monday off of Cape Hatteras, photographed by the Coast Guard.
I read in the papers that there will be an official inquiry. Maybe we will understand someday why she was out there in the path of a huge and well forecast storm, why the crew was put at risk and why members of the Coast Guard had to be put at risk in a heroic rescue effort.
