  1. Peaceful, calming photos, wonderful. Why has the wreck not been cut up and removed?

    • Thanks, John. 😊 One of my favorite places on the Oregon coast and I loved seeing the pelicans fishing in the surf!

  2. I am amazed that the wreck is still there. I remember it from 65 years ago. Thanks for the reminder.

      • 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)
