The crew of the Maiken sailed through the South Pacific when they spotted a strange discoloration on the water. They moved in closer to inspect it, but by the time they realized what it was, it was too almost too late to escape alive!
We might not realize it in front of our eyes, but the Earth is still changing all the time! It just happens so slowly that we can’t really perceive it. Every now and then, things speed up… a lot!
The crew of the Maiken was enjoying a leisurely sail through the South Pacific when they spotted a strange discoloration on the water. They moved in closer to inspect it, but by the time they realized what it was, it was too late…
THE CREW OF THE MAIKEN WAS SAILING THE SOUTH PACIFIC WHEN THEY SPOTTED AN UNUSUAL SHADOW.
AS THEY GOT CLOSER, WHAT THEY HAD TAKEN TO BE A SANDBAR REVEALED ITSELF TO BE SOMETHING ELSE ENTIRELY.
IT LOOKS LIKE A BEACH IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN!
THE FIELD OF PUMICE WAS GETTING EVEN LARGER AS THEY PASSED THROUGH IT. THE CREW HAD AN UNEASY FEELING AND UPPED THEIR SPEED.
ONCE THEY WERE A SAFE DISTANCE AWAY, THEY HEARD A FAINT RUMBLING. LOOKING BACK THEY SAW WATER BUBBLING FROM THE SURFACE.
AS THE SMOKE CLEARED, THEY NOTICED SOMETHING STRANGE JUST AT THE WATER’S SURFACE….
THE STUNNED CREW COULDN’T BELIEVE WHAT THEY WERE SEEING: IT WAS THE ACTUAL BIRTH OF A NEW ISLAND.
THEY SAILED A LITTLE BIT CLOSER TO SEE IF THEIR EYES WERE PLAYING TRICKS ON THEM.
IT WAS ONE OF THE RAREST EVENTS IMAGINABLE.
They were so lucky! Not only because they were able to witness such an impossible sight… but also because they barely escaped with their lives!
