Nice!

Any story behind it, like how it must've run aground and stayed upright like that?

The Magnolia was broken in half when the steamer exploded. Only the bow beached here. Recent storms washed away about 3 feet of sand and so more of it was showing for a few months, then the sand came back and it's getting covered up again. I'll try to find some of my photos to share.

It almost looks like a ship left by the Viking during one of their tours of England.

There is something so exciting about seeing, touching, and daydreaming about old wrecks like this. We have one here on Kennebunk Beach that only shows a couple of times a year, at the astronomical low tide. Way cool!

About WurzelDave

WurzelDave

I'm a 'wurzel' who lives in South West England (UK) in the county of Somerset (next to Devon), famous for scrumpy cider, Cheddar cheese, The Wurzels (well worth going to see) & birth county of 2009 F1 world champion Jenson Button.Like the rest of the West Country, Somerset has many areas, places & landscapes worth a visit such as Glastonbury Tor & Abbey ruins, Quantock hills, West Somerset Railway, Cheddar Gorge, & Exmoor, to name but a very few.Favourite holiday destiations are Iceland (see alot of photos) & the Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi Sweden (also see photos). Still a lover of the flim camera, my first camera was an Halina 110 camera which you could buy flip flashes for! I have a Canon 3000V SLR film camera, also have some TLR cameras from the 1950's plus Canon powershot A3300 & SX150 digital cameras which are useful for close up macro shots & also makes film 'last' longer!
