So, I suppose there is a chance that these “flashes” are simply sunlight reflecting off of boats waaaay far out, but I don’t think so.
When driving home from Cape Hedge Beach, past Pebble Beach, by Lands End, and down Eden Road along the ocean near Thacher’s Island, my own Thatcher noticed “lights” flashing off that little sailboat. After pulling over, and upon closer inspection, the lights were obviously well beyond the sailboat and more to the right. He was concerned the boat was in trouble and was shooting off flares. Too much Discovery Channel or National Geographic at home? Maybe.
So, we watched for a while and they continued….a good distance a part, dotting the horizon.
Forgive the surly tone coming from one of my boys ….and the dog barking in the background. Such is my life.
Watch closely, to the right of the boats, and as far over as the edge of the screen. You’ll see 7 or so flashes. Just sunlight? I don’t know…maybe.
