Dicky



I posted a shot with the wreck of the S.S.Dicky in the background a few months ago, and it elicited some excitement from a few former residents, so thought I'd return with some more.

The ship was wrecked in around 1900 and is variously buried by the sand or exposed depending on the state of the beach during the year. A few years ago it was completely exposed deliberately, and the steel treated with rust preventative in an attempt to slow the decaying process, as it is seen as a part of the identity of the neighbourhood which derived it's name from the wreck.

Yep. Nice light on both the rust and the water. Really good. Like this one.
