I much enjoyed the photos and the extra information of the shipwreck. Love that "stuff". Here on Lake Michigan I come across parts of ships form the 1800s that have beached and get uncovered once in awhile. Always a sense of what happened to those who were on board.

It was interesting to read about the wreck. We have some that occasionally can be seen off the coast of Devon and Cornwall, and I am sure from smuggling days a lot more on the sea bed never seen again.

Some very dangerous waters along the NZ coastline and some pretty rough weather explains the many shipwrecks...
