Wild Release #990, a/k/a Catch #145!
Even if you don't like seafood, you can't go to the beach without eating at least once at a seafood restaurant. There is one right across the bridge from Sunset Beach, but the nieces and I saw a guy being taken away on a stretcher and put in an ambulance the last time we passed by, so we nixed the idea of going there. Instead, we headed back to Calabash and dined at Ella's. We got there early, to beat the rush, and since they had a nice white bench outside the restaurant, I left "Twelve Sharp," by Janet Evanovich, there at 5 p.m., sharp. It turns out it was there less than 10 minutes before an AnonymousFinder picked it up: "Found this book on the bench at Ella's restaurant (found out here that it was less than 10 minutes after is was released). We were intrigued by the tag on the cover and took the book inside to find out more. My daughters, 13 and 8, were as fascinated as I was about the premise of bookcrossing.com. I plan to read the book, and the kids are already thinking of places to release it back to the wild." Enjoy!
