Don't you just hate it when this happens?
Apparently in the middle of the night, a boat running without lights rammed the jetty pier and knocked it into the ocean. Tai-tai and I were awaken early in the a.m. to a loud crash. We thought it may have been another large thunderstorm...but nothing was going on. Just a large noise and nothing. We found out the next morning this is what it was.
The knuckleheads that ran into this thing came to the hotel seeking compensation for the damage to their boat. Uhhh...right. Something along the lines that the pier was not lit and the couldn't see it. Hmmm...wouldn't it help if you ran your boat with lights??
The sad part...tai-tai and I were to have our anniversary dinner out on the pier. Just the two of us, a cook and a waiter. Watching the sunset and enjoying a terrific meal to celebrate 20 years. Trying to think of a plan 'B'...the hotel will continue to work on it for us.
