36 Stranded

August 20th, 2014... this beautiful sandbar with a narrow connecting "bridge" to the main beach, became an island trapping 36 people with no way to get to shore! This was part of a favorite fishing beach during the sockeye run, called "Pegg Leg" on the Fraser River. Chilliwack Search and Rescue did their largest ever rescue to take those people by helicopter to the mainland! Excitement that we missed as Rob left there by 11 to go for his first day of chemo, second round. It happened 3 hours later!
