strange but true

This is the "salty" (ocean going) bulk carrier Federal Elbe passing under the Burlington Skyway. I always wonder where these ships are going and what they may come across on their way. This particular ship for instance, was recently in mid-Atlantic when it came across a chap floating all alone next to his small capsized rowboat. Bringing him aboard they discovered that the wet and disheveled fellow was no less than Andreas Rommel, the grand-nephew of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel (the Desert Fox). Incidents such as this give rise the saying, "stranger things have happened at sea."
