Skeletal Remains of The SS Dickey

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

In 1893, the steam powered SS Dickey was being pounded by 30 foot waves in a Force 11 gale as her master John Beattie battled to find refuge behind a headland. She was forced aground at what is now known as Dicky Beach (Note no "e") where her rusting skeleton remains as a beautiful reminder of her proud past.

Top drawer shot Jack. A most memorable image and excellent result.

Definitely one for my favourites. Y*+L (37/84) (something missing I think Jack because the figures don't add up)

Best wishes
