Great shot, I like the boat there Bryan! I was just across the water last week too, didn't see you there? Danny

Bryan Bredberg on September 1, 2009

Thanks Danny. This one had definitely seen better days. The whole transom was busted out. I think this is it's final resting place.

By "just across the water" do you mean the southern end of Vancouver Island (Victoria or thereabouts)? It was a very clear day and the V.I. and the San Juans were all out in all their glory. Bryan.

Nice shot. I took a picture of this wreck a couple of years ago. It's good to see that it's still there.

Yes, we usually hike this once a summer and I know this boat has been there at least 2 or 3 years. I guess they haven't had any storms big enough to move it.

lovely scene, great colours, when I first looked at the map Jamestown, In thought in might have been abandoned by the Pilgrim Fathers? Wrong Jamestown. so I guess it was the Native Indians, cheers scally.

Classic coastal scene, best wishes, Fai

Fai, Thanks. Yes, sand, driftwood, rocks, water, and an old washed up boat. I could have placed this picture on virtually any saltwater beach in the world and no one would have been any the wiser. If your look really close you can see, in the background, the outline of the southern tip of Vancouver Island (around Victoria), but that's about it. That's what I like about Panoramio. I zoom in and out on the maps to get context. It makes the pictures more interesting.

Scally, very observant. Someone else who looks at the maps! I'm not quite a local here, though we come here a lot and have a vacation cabin fairly close to this, yet I'd never heard of this particular Jamestown. I think of this whole area as Sequim (pronounce Skwim), or perhaps Dungeness.

Thanks for the comment, Bryan

I wonder if it will still be there after this last storm? Nice composition, looks like it was one of those perfect summer days.

I love this shot, Bryan. Just the sort of thing that great pics are made of. Is this spit always dry provided the seas are calm, or does it 'tide over?'

Bryan Bredberg on April 9, 2010

I'm betting it is, Nawitka. I usually manage to do this hike at least once a year and the boat has been there for a few years now.

This particular hike was on a beautiful day. I remember it got beautiful just as we got going. We were originally going to go up to Hurricane Ridge, but it looked too socked in.

Bryan Bredberg on April 9, 2010

Johny, It stays dry most of the time ... maybe always in the summer. This was at high tide. It does breach occasionally when they get winter storms coinciding with high tides.

Another interesting fact: it is growing about 6 feet per year. The lighthouse was at the end when it was built in the 19th century, but now the spit continues for another 1/2 mile.

Thanks for the visit and comment, Bryan
