A terrible thing happened when I was mucking about on a beach in Japan. The wind was oh-so-blustery. I was standing near the edge of a peer when my favorite blue sunglasses blew off from around my neck and landed about 10 feet below in the salty water. I have a special connection with those slick shades, so I was fairly upset about them falling into the ocean. Luckily, they landed close enough to the crusty concrete blocks that I could climb down near the water and see them at the bottom. More after the jump:
They fell off from on top of this concrete slab.
The crevasse that they fell into. :(
Firstly, I went a fetched a long stick so I could gauge how deep the water was. It seemed to be about 5 or 6 feet. I found a couple more nice sticks and some string and I was able to fashion a wooden hook. The sunglasses were successfully fished out of the sea on my first try! >o<
Gotta be worth some J points here.
I'm callin' it 20.
