Toto, we're not in Kansas any more....


I had never seen actual shipwreck remains until today. Hubby took me to Weld Road beach and I was in awe when he casually pointed and told me that those parts sticking out of the beach are what is left of a real ship that sunk here about 100 years ago.

Very interesting story. Glad no one was hurt! Do you suppose it's so interesting to us because we're from a land-locked state???

Definitely not in Kansas. That's an interesting story and your photo captures the starkness of the coast.

Truth isn't always a pleasure to view. Nice job on Outdoor Wednesday Post. Never saw a ship wreck before in real life either.

I don't think I've ever seen a real shipwreck except in movies! Great story too.

I haven't seen anything above water but have viewed one from a submarine ride. Great shot. Have a blessed week. Debbie

How fascinating! No smooth sailing for the SS Gairloch. The poor ship sounds like it had quite a history of getting into trouble before it was considered totaled.

Thanks for sharing it with us.
