Default Hit by Wake Waves! Caribbean Princess

I was hit by the waves created by the wake as I was videoing the Good Year Blimp as it was flying over the Caribbean Princess Sailing from Port Everglades on February 9, 2013. There's a bit of a story about this video. As I was shooting from the beach area in Fort Lauderdale. I thought I hit the jackpot as the Goodyear Blimp was about to be flying right over the Ship as she set sail. Great timing! NOT! I was so excited that I failed to notice the beach was getting larger as the water was sucked away from the sides of the ship and is forced behind the ship by the propellers. These waves from the wake eventually hit and crashed into me. I didn't even see them coming. I was pushed into the rocks by the waves and did scrape up my leg. I did my best to salvage the ending. I left all this "fun" in the video. Enjoy!

Was that the pilot boat along the side of the ship?

That's the coastguard. Note the man with the mounted machine gun on the bow of the boat.

Deekie, I was so focused on that boat, because it seemed to be so reckless, I missed what was happening...will watch agiain to focus more on your position, and oh ya, the machine gun!!

We watched the CG cutter as we left port. I don't know if it was for our "protection" or their entertainment.

Deekie - that is a tough lesson, sometimes we focus so much on the picture we miss the scene.

I did learn my lesson quickly. I recouped and shot another video of the next ship to depart. It was Oasis of the Seas. I kept back and stayed safe. The wake waves were even larger than the Caribbean Princess waves. I would have been sucked out to sea for sure!
