Locations for "Lucky" from yesterday. These show him still moving slowly
to the south, and with the exception of the last point, keeping about 20
miles offshore. The last point looks like he was heading west towards the
coast of Truro, Massachusetts (and was about 7 miles offshore as of last
night), however this point does point have a high accuracy (LC) rating.
Looking at the distance and time between the last two points in today's
set, it is most likely that one of those two locations is not correct (it
would be hard for him to swim that far in the time between the two points).
 Hopefully, tomorrow we should have an answer, and should know if "Lucky"
is indeed headed back to the coast.
