It’s been a journey that’s for sure, but the soccer ball we found on the coast on the Washington coast near the Chilean Memorial as part of the Ikkatsu Roadless Coast Project has finally been returned home.
The film crew of the upcoming documentary, Lost and Found, along with John Anderson, returned the ball to the kids of the Otsuchi Soccer Club. John who is rather well know for his beach combing efforts and debris museum was kind enough to offer to return our ball along with the some other artifacts he’s found on the coast.
I don’t have all the details yet, but apparently their manager Dice Cay was lost in the tsunami along with all their gear, balls and uniforms making the return of our ball all the more poignant.
I’ll post updates here as I get them.
