Saturday was crazy on the delta, high temps and a ton of boats made it seem more like a holiday weekend that just one in July.

We were heading towards empire cut via milton island and creeping up on the bridge by S. Bacon Island Road. There are three passage ways under the bridge, two sketchy at high tide, one you'd have to drop the tower to make it. We see a red Malibu towing a tube with three kids on it coming at us so we scoot over to take the far right slot letting them have the middle, fuguring they would slow down...

Nope, guy takes the far left slot by the house with the cross bars all the way across at full speed and never slows down.. BAM.. there goes the tower, it just explodes, the center bar hits one kid in the back seat but misses the tubers... They pull over and I then had a chance to grab the camera for a few shots.

We cruised back under the bridge to see if they needed help or a tow, the guys stated they were fine, had an icepack on the one kids head.. In fact we later saw them on empire towing the tube, albeit with only part of a tower. Wonder what the hell they'll tell the insurance company.
