😭------------------------------------------------- - I'm lucky enough to live by the beach on the central Oregon Coast. I love to take pictures and always have my camera in my pocket, just in case. I'm totally impressed by all the awesome pictures posted here and it's fun with all the comments and rating. The feedback on my photos are also very much appreciated.-Kristina

Image Description: the weather was probably much worse on that October night in 1906 when Peter Iredale ran aground? Sailing from Salina Cruz, Mexico, on or about September 26, 1906, the Peter Iredale was bound for Portland, Oregon with 1,000 tons of ballast and a crew of 27. The voyage up the coast was unremarkable until the night of October 25, when Captain H. Lawrence sighted the Tillamook Rock Lighthouse at 3:20 a.m. local time. The crew altered course first east-northeast and then northeast to enter the mouth of the Columbia River in thick mist and a rising tide. Under strong winds out of the west, an attempt was made to wear the ship away from shore, but a heavy northwest squall grounded the Peter Iredale on Clatsop Sands (now called Clatsop Spit). High seas and wind drove the ship ashore. A lifeboat was dispatched from Hammond, Oregon and assisted in evacuating the sailors, who were tended to at Fort Stevens. No casualties occurred in the accident.
