Even though it is not easy noticeable and most people can’t realize that, our Earth continuously is still changing! In fact, all of those changes are happening very slowly and we can’t really perceive it. However, from time to time, things speed up… a lot!
While the crew of the Maiken was enjoying a leisurely sail through the South Pacific, all of a sudden they noticed a strange discoloration on the water. The entire crew was curious to find out what is happening and moved in closer to inspect that strange thing. By the time the crew realized what it was, but it was too late…
WHILE THE CREW OF THE MAIKEN WAS SAILING THE SOUTH PACIFIC, THEY NOTICED AN UNUSUAL SHADOW.
THEY WERE VERY CURIOUS AND GOT CLOSER. THEY CONSIDERED THAT IS SANDBAR, BUT IT COME OUT TO BE IS SOMETHING TOTALLY DIFFERENT.
NAMELY, THERE WAS HUGE AMOUNT OF PUMICE STONE FLOATING TO THE SURFACE OF THE WATER. IT LOOKED LIKE A BEACH.
THE CREW DECIDED TO GET A CLOSER LOOK AND REDIRECTED THEIR YACHT TOWARDS IT.
IT SEEMDED LIKE A BEACH IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN!
SO, THEY DECIDED TO SAIL THROUGH IT, LEAVING A BREAK IN THE STONE BEHIND THEM AS THEY WENT.
THEY WERE WONDERING WHAT COULD CAUSE THAT EXPANSE OF STONE TO SUDDENLY APPEAR.
AS THEY WERE GETTING CLOSER AND PASSED THROUGH IT, THE FIELD OF PUMICE BECAME EVEN LARGER. THE ENTIRE CREW HAD AN AWKWARD FEELING AND UPPED THEIR SPEED.
WHEN THEY WERE ON A SAFE DISTANCE AWAY, THEY HEARD A FAINT RUMBLING. THEY LOOK BACK AND SAW WATER BUBBLING FROM THE SURFACE.
IT IS FRIGHTENING THAT THE SOURCE OF THE PUMICE STONE WAS AN UNDERWATER VOLCANO THAT WAS ACTUALLY WAS ERUPTING AT THAT MOMENT!
THEY WERE ANCHORED IN ORDER TO WATCH THAT AMAZING EVENT. MASSIVE PLUMES OF SMOKE FILLED THE SKY. AFTER THE SMOKE CLEARED, THEY SAW SOMETHING REALLY STRANGE AT THE WATER’S SURFACE….
THAT WAS LAND!
THE CREW WAS STUNNED AND COULDN’T BELIEVE WHAT ACTUALLY THEY WERE LOOKING: IT WAS THE ACTUAL BIRTH OF A NEW ISLAND.
AFTER THAT THEY SAILED A LITTLE BIT CLOSER TO AS THEY WANTED TO SEE IF THEIR EYES WERE PLAYING TRICKS ON THEM.
STILL, THAT WAS REAL. THE PEAKS OF THIS NEW LAND MASS WERE ALREADY TAKING FORM.
THAT PROBABLY IS ONE OF THE RAREST EVENTS IMAGINABLE.
We must say that they had really lucky day! The witnessed this impossible sight and at the same time barely escaped with their lives!
