WHAT IT IS
Samantha Gallant loves to fly. Over the years she has found various ways to not only get in the air, but to make a suitable living from her passion. One of the many tasks she takes on is to deliver planes all over North America to wealthy people who buy them. On her last delivery she started thinking of the strange and wonderful things she sees from above: two horses and riders swimming from PEI to Cape Breton Island with what looked like a fairy leading the way, a restaurateur and his patrons harassed by insects as they dined on a suspended platform, teddy bears swinging through the forest, chipmunks high-fiving one another on a forest ridge, a man diving off a ferry crossing the Delaware…she couldn’t help but wonder what she might see next.
WHAT IT IS NOT
McCormik and James watched as Dizzy and Bella became tiny dots on the horizon, disappearing entirely. No amount of yelling or big gestures from the beach was going to bring them back to the shore. McCormik knew some fishermen close by, so they got back into the truck hoping a fishing boat might be what they needed to find the women. A boat out of Souris scoured the area to no avail. James even hired a plane to search the area between PEI and Cape Breton but Dizzy and Bella were never spotted, although another pilot in the area at the time reported seeing two horses, two women and a fairy going ashore near Inverness on Cape Breton Island.
