The Wreck

"The Wreck" is what the locals here call an ancient shipwreck that sits on our shore and has done since the late 1800's.  The fascinating thing about the Wreck in the last few months is that this is the most anyone has ever seen of it since it first crashed upon our beach.  Due to the large storms we've been having recently, the tide has revealed more of the Wreck than I have ever seen in 30 years of living in my little town.

I want to share with you some photos I took of our strange phenomenon today.  If you can see the three tall, rusted posts in the middle of the picture above, that is sometimes all you can see of the Wreck.  Occasionally a few of the old wooden posts jut above the sand, showing all of three to four inches, but that has been the most the Wreck has ever revealed of herself.  It was very interesting wandering around it, walking inside it and getting to inspect it in all her rusty, old wooden glory.

Very skeleton-like

Love the green in this pic

Almost lets me imagine the ship going through the waves in it's former glory
