First off, thank-you for coming here and looking at our photos. These are photos of places we have gone to and through. Some of the photos are taken through windows of Boats, Buses, Taxi’s, Planes and Trucks and where the windows weren’t always clean. We have been fortunate to see many places and what's nice, is, everybody lives a little bit different in their place than in the next place. We’ve done a lot of walking, have to get better shoes. We also try to get off the beaten Tourist trails, so we can see the real way people live in their communities. We try to take photos of everyday life, keeps things more real, I think anyways. We also like to see other peoples photos and where they have been. The world is awesome…………………..

Peter H Orlick's conversations

There are two wrecks here in Dixon Bay and they are a source of speculation since the 1970ies, when they sank there.

They grounded close together, and there are several stories around. Some claim one ship, with a cargo of lumber, ran aground in a storm. The second ship came to assist, and also ended up on the reef. The lumber was off-loaded in a futile attempt to save the ship, and was collected by local residents.

Others say the cargo was marble.

One version maintains one was a Cayman-owned vessel run aground intentionally for insurance.

Rumors persist that the ships were involved in the Nicaraguan revolution, then abandoned.

Longtime residents report that the wrecks were two separate incidents. One did carry lumber; the other carried paint. Both ships caught fire and were abandoned. During an attempt to tow the ships out to sea, they broke free and came to rest in Dixon Cove.
