Jon and Barb had a wide circle of elite sycophantic friends who expected to be invited to parties aboard their yacht or holidays on their private island simply because they were loaded.
They hated it, especially when some simply turned up unannounced and uninvited when they had escaped to their personal retreat for a weekend of peace and solitude.
So rather than have notices offshore saying ‘shallow water’ or ‘reef’, they simply invested in a few old wrecks and anchored them on the sand spits not visible under the water.
It worked, because no-one wanted their own precious vessels to run aground and they left them alone.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
