‘Mystery blonde’ reunited with lost camera at sea for six years — 8,000 kilometres later
A Georgia woman has been reunited with her camera and photos after the camera she lost during a 2007 trip to Hawaii washed ashore some 8,000 kilometres away in Taiwan.
Lindsay Scallan says she was on a scuba diving trip when she lost her camera during a night dive.
Scallan tells WGCL-TV she recently got a Facebook message from a high school friend saying his wife found an article on a Hawaiian television station’s website about a lost camera. (Facebook)
‘Some people give us Cape Bretoners a bad name’: The smoking MacNeils earn hamlet of Mabou a new claim to fame
Before the Second World War, Mabou, Cape Breton, was known mostly for coal mining. More recently, it was celebrated as the home of the Rankin Family, the popular Celtic pop band.
This week, the hamlet of about 1,000 has a fresh claim to fame: The smoking MacNeils.
On Friday a Sunwing flight to the Dominican Republic was forced to land in Bermuda, and three MacNeils arrested. David MacNeil Sr., 54, Darlene MacNeil, 52 and David MacNeil Jr., 22, allegedly tried to smoke on the plane, and then refused to cooperate with the flight staff. An entire planeload of vacationers spent a day dealing with the fallout.
The MacNeils, now banned from Sunwing, were to fly home Tuesday night, but their story already had an uninterrupted flight home.
