the ramblings of a woman who was transported from her comfort zone in the US Midwest to a different country and culture that shouldn't be so different, but is.
May 5, 2023 marks the 100 anniversary of the sinking of the SS Waitangi on the beach at Patea.
I have several photos from when the sands scattered and revealed the remains of the ship.
A very interesting story about the SS Waitangi and her changes of ownership over the years. Thanks for sharing the story and photos.
thanks for this post Betty - I had not heard of this shipwreck, but there is one in Himitangi Beach, near Levin, that was still visible some 10 years ago when last I was out thereBlessingsMaxine
Υπέροχη ανάρτηση και φανταστικό ιστολόγιο.
Not much left of this old steamer now that it has sat on or under the beach for 100 years. Fun reading her history. Thanks for the post.
