Made my day

I was standing on the porch of the island and I heard a group of people at Kendall Buster’s pier yell “Hi!”  I yelled “Hello!” right back at them.  We were trying to carry on a conversation but I could not understand what they were saying.  Eventually they yelled in unison, “BYE JESSICA!”  I was surprised that they yelled out my name because they were not by the beach with the information for Indianapolis Island.

I ran inside the island and attempted to snap a shot of them walking away from the pier.

What an amazing experience.  I am fascinated by the multiple levels of communication with this project.  I never thought yelling back and forth from island to short would ever be a valid method of communication.  Haha.

    Ha. I totally had a yelling-from-shore conversation with you today. You don’t know me, so I felt odd yelling your name at you. But it works! I will eventually get my two year old, Teddy, out to visit you on the Island. Then the next time I yell your name from shore it won’t be so weird. :)

    Haha. Well I had fun communicating! Come check out the island. I am sure Teddy will love the boat ride.
