wreck of the Minnehaha

the wreck of the Minnehaha can be seen quite well right along the shoreline of Lake Michigan near Arcadia, Michigan. the ship was wrecked during a storm in early October in 1893, while carrying 58,000 bushels of corn.

this is a picture from this evening.

strangely, when I was here 3 weeks ago, there was almost no part of it visible. it is amazing to see how the action of the waves moves and displaces sand up and down the beach.
