Retired


The salt marsh at Oyster Va. contains a treasure trove for the photographer. This boat along with the one displayed in my earlier post “Sunken” are located near the road there along with another smaller but no less photogenic boat.

This marsh is located at the end of the small harbor. Possibly hurricanes and storm surges are responsible for depositing these boats in their final resting places.

Another find and shot Salty. Sad for the sailor but good for the photographer.

Interesting shot Salty. I often wonder the story behind things like this.

We went last summer to the New Orleans area and St Bernard Parish is still littered with boats all over the place, not to mention cars, houses and quite a few other things!

Another cool boat.

I would say this is a retired boat. Nice shot.

I like this old boat. It certainly has seen better days.

I like your new header too.

There is a ferry that crosses the mouth of Mobile Bay down in AL, and it got loose during a hurricane, and it took a week or so to find it. Had they not looked hard, I suspect it would have looked like this one day!

Great picture. Since I was a child, I have had the weird feeling of boats under water. In general I am a pretty fearless person, but boats under water gets to me like nothing else.
