Somewhere on a beach in Oregon
and the wreck of the Peter Iredale.
For Wordless Wednesday.

Peaceful, calming photos, wonderful. Why has the wreck not been cut up and removed?
It’s been there over a hundred years and is quite the attraction. Considered one of the most accessible and long-lasting shipwrecks in the world.
Oh, okay. Oops! It may be gone naturally in another one hundred years.
It’s fun to visit. A beautiful beach and the only shipwreck I’ve ever seen. 🙂
All the better a reason to visit. 👍🏻☺️
Terrific photos and nothing better than a dive-bombing Pelican!
Thanks, John. 😊 One of my favorite places on the Oregon coast and I loved seeing the pelicans fishing in the surf!
Loved the Images 🙂
Thanks so much! I’m glad you did!
A lovely deserted beach, Susanne. Except for the Pelicans of course.
Best wishes, Pete.
Thanks, Pete. It’s one of my favorites on the Oregon Coast.
The first few photos are so peaceful, and then we come to the drama of a shipwreck!
Yes, its just like that! 🙂
I am amazed that the wreck is still there. I remember it from 65 years ago. Thanks for the reminder.
Still there over a hundred years after it ran aground in 1906. Still fun to see on the beach.
There sure doesn’t seem to be as much driftwood nor agates on “agate beach.” Glad the wreck is still there.
This was a long smooth beach, great for walking. Do you remember it differently from years ago? There’s an officially named ‘Agate Beach’ further down the Oregon Coast.
My comment was confusing. No the beach with the wreck is the same. Agate Beach, further south, no longer is covered in agates as when I was a child. Nor do the beaches seem to have the huge pile of driftwood we used to explore and use as forts.
Ah, that makes sense. I don’t think I’ve been to Agate Beach. I have noticed that Washington’s beaches have much more driftwood than those in Oregon. And I did see a lot of agates on California’s central coast beaches, which was wonderful.
It was an amazing experience as a kid. We all amassed rock collections there.(Probably why all the agates disappeared. LOL)
Great photos Susanne. Looks like a terrific beach for a walk.
Thanks, Graham. It’s a big, beautiful beach and the shipwreck is fun to see, too.
