“The A&B Building was made entirely from driftwood.” Carol said as we stood before the Camp Skagway.
“Where did they acquire so much driftwood?” I wondered.
“The brothers, Alan and Bob Skagway, got stranded on an uncharted island for five years. No one knows why.”
“How did they get off the island?”
“They built a ship, not a raft like in Castaway but like a great big ship like Noah’s Ark, and sailed themselves home.”
“Oh, so that’s why this building is made from driftwood.” I chuckled, “that’s funny.”
Carol shook her head. “No, on the night of their homecoming, they were having too much fun partying on the ship and someone knocked over a torch, lit the whole place up. The next morning, the brothers painstakingly salvaged the pieces of wood floating on the ocean and as a memorial, they constructed this building solely with the wood salvaged. So it’s really drift wood, get it?”
For those who have questions about the word “Castaway”, it’s a movie that came out I think the 90’s.
