Remember those two fishermen?
Well, the stoic of the two, with aspirations to emigrate, stood puzzled, alone on his boat, looking to a busy landscape af assorted boats, assorted models, just a few modern whilst many dated appeared dated, all lacking any hint of animation as they stood eerily still in two rows to his side, creating a perfect runway to an attractive little island.
This island looked like imagery one would see on a postcard, a clear golden beach, palm trees, questionable trees, a mountain or volcano area way in the back, yet the in between, appeared to sport housing? Colourful little cottages, each a different colour from the last but identical in architecture, were revealed by his binoculars as he haulted his ascent down the path and steadied himself.
He put his binoculars away, began his three point turn and retreated from the area.
The two fishermen stood at the counter of a dark and dusty store as the sales assistant boxed a DB radio.
"I still think this is a waste of money"
our previously curious one whispered
"Our work just fine"
"Gotta be on the safe side if we're going back around there"
the other answered

the other joyfully answered
"I'm serious! That water was still, fishing potential may be low, yet I need to get on that island, there's likely something there worthwhile"
the discoverer said as he scratched his forehead with his free hand and winced into the distance
"I wanna check out this island too"
the other said
"You believe me?"
the leader said as he snapped out of his ill focus.
"Of course I do, after that wall, and you told me weird things are common at sea, darn I'm excited"
the other began
"I wanna see this island, even if it's full of savages who sacrifice us to their gods, an adventure's an adventure right"
the other laughed
The leader shook his head.
The two climbed into the boat.
The leader sat with his purchase on deck, whilst the other prepared to captain the boat.
The other stood at the steering wheel, shouting a curt

The other steered the vessel away from the bay, his actions viewed from the spare tarpaulin, a large messy bundled at the back of the cabin.
