Enjoying an early morning workout on the river and discovering this. At least he reported it.

I was in the bow of an eight when my crew found a body in the basin by the MoS early one morning about 33 years ago.

The cox summoned the launch, while the crew steadied the boat and I checked her for signs of life. She was young, just a little older than we were, and wearing a hospital gown. Her hair floated around her slack face like seaweed.

I see her in dreams, sometimes floating in space or time. I will never know who she was, but she will never be forgotten - not by me at least.
